Revital grew up in Netanya, Israel. She was the first Ethiopian-Israeli to be accepted to the Israeli military’s highly selective and prestigious journalism course at Galei Zahal – the national radio station and was the social affairs correspondent of the station. Experiencing first-hand the critical need for social change in Israeli society, she longed to speak up and make a difference in the communities to which she belongs, and in that position, she had the great privilege of telling the stories of people whose voices were unheard.
In her creative- activist journey, intersecting storytelling and social change, Revital is fulfilling her passion - to amplify unheard voices. She is the co-founder of "Have you seen the Horizon Lately" a nonprofit initiative that hosts a series of events across Israel, aimed at bringing a new spirit into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Acknowledging that she comes from a culture of storytellers whose collective story reflects the richness, struggles, and the triumphs of Jewish Ethiopian communities in Israel motivates Revital to deepen her storytelling work.
Revital completed the Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism program at the International Center of Photography as a Director’s Fellow. She is currently the Director of External Relation, Content, and Resource Development at the Gesher Multicultural Film Fund.
