Comino Films is a Tel Aviv based independent production company created by Silvina Landsmann in order to produce her own documentary films, free from the constraints of ratings, predetermined film-length and other industry imposed categories.
Silvina Landsmann was born in Buenos Aires in 1965 and immigrated to Israel when she was eleven. Landsmann studied at the Film Department at the University of Tel Aviv and then lived in Paris for ten years, where she made her first film “COLLÈGE” (Prix les Ecrans Documentaires, France 1998).
Returning to Israel, she created Comino Films in order to produce her own documentary films. She directed, produced and filmed “Post Partum” and then “Unto Thy Land” (Grand Prize – Ateliers d’Art de France – Exceptional Work, France 2010). Her latest film “Soldier/Citizen” (2012) was awarded a Caligari Film Prize Special Mention at the 2012 Berlinale.
