Director: Avishai Sivan • Israel
A young Israeli ultra-Orthodox man experiences a crisis of faith in this formally daring black-and-white drama that employs bravura, often shocking imagery. Following a near-death experience, the formerly devout Yeshiva student begins wandering Jerusalem’s empty streets at night without purpose, while his father—a Kosher butcher—experiences terrifying nightmares as retribution for saving his son.
