Ben Wolf

After winning a Student Academy Award for Best Cinematography for his first movie, “Gold Mountain,” Ben has concentrated on narrative films. Pictures such as  “Lustre” (director Art Jones), “The Young Girl and the Monsoon” (director Shoja Azari) have garnered acclaim at numerous festivals including Locarno, Venice, Tribeca, and Bermuda.  

Recently, Ben filmed Shrin Neshat’s commission for cellist Maya Beiser’s “Almost Human” tour which premiered at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Location work has taken Ben from the deserts of Xinjiang and Israel to the hill stations of India, in addition to the summit of that gem of all urban locations: the West Tower of the Brooklyn Bridge. 

Ben’s Commitment to visual character studies continues with his latest features, “Henry May Long” (director Randall Sharp) and “Favorite Son” (director Howard Libov).
