Eli Ungar-Sargon was born in London and raised in a strict Orthodox Jewish home in Brookline, MA. When he was 13 years old, Eli’s family moved to Israel where he attended a number of religious high schools
and Yeshivot until he was 19 years old. Having decided not to serve in the Israeli military for ethical reasons, Eli enrolled in medical school in England where he studied for three years. Upon completing the third year of his MD, Eli left Medicine to pursue his dream of becoming a filmmaker. He went on to complete two degrees at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Shortly after graduating, Eli completed his first feature-length documentary film, “Cut” on the subject of male circumcision and Jewish identity. He has since moved to Los Angeles and completed his second feature-length documentary film “A People Without A Land” on the subject of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
