Possessing three citizenships (Israeli, Turkish and American) and a close connection to all three places, Odin grew up in Michigan and spent summers overseas with his Ladino-speaking family. As an alumni of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles’s New Leaders Program, Odin has participated in Israel advocacy work beyond the Jewish community. After graduating with his MFA from the Columbia University film program, Odin’s documentary work has him allowed him to tell the stories of refugees from around the world, including Jews from North Africa and the Middle East. He looks forward to programming events that celebrate the Sephardic and Mizrahi traditions, and partnering with the many other wonderful Jewish organizations in the Los Angeles area.
