Zero Motivation
A zany, dark comedic portrait of everyday life in a unit of female Israeli soldiers. The human resources office at a remote desert base serves as the setting for this cast of characters who bide their time pushing paper and battling in computer games, counting down the minutes until they can return to civilian life. Amidst their boredom and clashing personalities, issues of commitment—to friendship, love, and country—are handled with humor and sharp-edged wit. Dir. Talya Lavie (2014, Israel, 100 min)Followed by a conversation with the director.Co-presented by IAC-Dor Chadash. (more)REGISTER
