Daniel Mann is an Israeli London-based filmmaker and researcher.
Mann's work explores intimate relations to home, land and territory, in the context of dispossession, coloniality, state violence and environmental degradation.
His writing appeared in journals such as Media, Culture & Society, Screen, and World Records. His first book, titled 'Occupying Habits: Visual Media as Warfare in Israel\Palestine', is coming out in 2021 with Bloomsbury.
His films have been exhibited internationally at film festivals and venues such as The Berlin Film Festival, The Rotterdam Film Festival, Cinema du Reel, The Hong Kong Film Festival, New Horizons, Sonic Acts, and the ICA in London.
Mann received his PhD in 2018 from the Media department and the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths College, London. Currently, he is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the Film Studies Department at King’s College London, where he works on a new project that focuses on the exploitation of Middle Eastern desert environments in cinematic depictions of war, conflict and climate crises.
