About Shirel Peleg: Shirel Peleg was born in Venezuela in 1985 and grew up in Israel. She studied at the Department of Film and Television of Sapir College in Scha’ar HaNegev (Israel) until 2010, specializing in production and directing. After graduating, she worked as a newsdesk producer for the Israeli broadcaster Channel 2 and for the Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz.

In 2012 Peleg moved to Germany with her partner, where she began studying at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg. As part of her studies, she made several short films that were screened at international festivals. In the summer of 2019, the shooting of Peleg’s first full-length feature film took place: The romantic screwball comedy “Kiss Me Kosher” (“Kiss Me Before It Blows Up”) is about a German woman who falls in love with an Israeli woman, which the latter’s grandmother does not like at all. The film was released in German cinemas in September 2020.

She has produced European units of high-quality drama series such as Counterpart, Killing Eve, as well as International units of high-profile documentary series such as Liz Garbus’ Emmy-nominated The Fourth Estate, Netflix’ Abstract The Art Of Design and Ugly Delicious.

In 2015 Christine co-founded her production company FIREGLORY Pictures with Chevy K. Chen. The producing team has since then specialized on internationally viable productions with a strong emphasis on crossover storytelling that bridges the Atlantic and sparks flames in minds and hearts.
