Maital Guttman

I am a filmmaker, activist, and entrepreneur and founded Dewdrop Films. My first film, entitled MECHINA: A PREPARATION, explores the lives of six Israelis before they enter the army (www.dewdropfilms.com/mechinathemovie). I self-produced a nation-wide tour to more than 50,000 young people. Dewdrop Films upcoming piece, WHEN YOU STRIKE A WOMAN, follows one South African woman’s story of hope through the hardship of township life.

Born in Israel, I have taught, volunteered, and produced documentary work in six continents, including New Orleans, Thailand, Uruguay, Poland, Israel, Morocco, and Moldova. In 2011, I was awarded a Dorot Fellowship, where I lived, volunteered, and produced films and photography in Tel Aviv. I am a 2nd year MBA student at UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School, concentrating in Management Consulting and Sustainable Enterprise and I completed my internship at McKinsey this past summer. I am the current President of the PRIDE club at UNC Kenan-Flagler.
