“A radical film for an Israeli movie – or for any movie.”
The Wrap

We will be joined by Hebrew, Jewish, and Israel Studies and Film & Video Librarian Uri Kolodney at University of Texas Libraries.

The latest film from Israeli writer-director Nadav Lapid (SYNONYMS) follows a celebrated filmmaker in Israel, very much an alter ego of the auteur himself, who encounters subtle but powerful censorship when he tries to present work critical of the government. AHED’S KNEE was the co-winner of the jury prize at Cannes.
