Introducing

Two years after Synonyms, the Israeli director returns to the screen with Ahed’s Knee. Nadav Lapid is not afraid to depict a dirigiste country and an Israeli society governed by fear, under the influence of political censorship, art and ideas. A modern western as musical as it is radical, whose protagonist, a filmmaker in the midst of a personal crisis, will have to fight in the middle of a society in the midst of a collective crisis.

Synopsis

Y., an Israeli filmmaker in his mid-forties, arrives in a remote village at the far end of the desert to present one of his films. There he meets Yahalom, an officer for the Ministry of Culture, and finds himself fighting two losing battles: one against the death of freedom in his country, the other against the death of his mother.
