Lia Tarachansky is a Tel-Aviv based filmmaker and the Israel/Palestine correspondent for The Real News Network (TRNN). The Real News makes short (under 10 minutes) documentary-style news stories that explore the context behind the news. In the summer of 2012 Tarachansky produced and co-directed a BBC-Arabic documentary about Israel's Social Justice movement (known as J14) and Moshe Silman, the man who set in motion a wave of self-immolations in protest of the harsh economic reality many experience in Israel.
She is currently completing work on her first feature documentary, Seven Deadly Myths, a Naretiv Films production. The film is an exploration of the power of denial. It questions what Israelis learn, know, and sometimes choose not to know about the 1948 war (the birth of the state of Israel) and the origin of Palestinian statelessness. It profiles four Israeli veterans of the war.
