Nadav Lapid, Blu-ray, 123 min, France/Israel/Germany, 2019 (French, Hebrew, English)

 

Yoav, a young Israeli, has a one-way ticket to Paris where he hopes to find salvation from the madness that prevails in his country. Steadfastly resolved to erase his origins, he refuses to speak Hebrew and instead obsessively studies his French dictionary. This film is recommended for mature audiences due to frequent nudity.

Introduction and talkback on Feb 22nd by the Sam and Helen Stahl Center for Jewish Studies’ director, Dr. Joel Berkowitz.
