Biographical history

DOV OKOUNEFF was studying agriculture at the University of Florida in 1949 when he went with a Hashomer Hatzair group to Kibbutz Gal-On, where he worked in the orchards. In 1968, he left for Jerusalem where he founded The Audio-Visual Unit of the World Zionist Organization, producing documentaries on Israeli life. After coming to Montreal in 1977 for Friends of Pioneering Israel, he set up his own company, D.O. Film (1982), concentrating on Canadian and Jewish themes, such as Gabrielle Roy's St. Henri, the Montreal Jewish Memories series and, now, A New Life on the Land: Jewish Farmers in Canada. He holds degrees in Political Science and Public Policy from Concordia University. (From DOFILM "About Us")
