Modern Masters

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

A young Israeli settles in Paris, determined to adopt a new identity and shed his previous life by adopting a new language. A bold and inventive cultural critique, and examination of eurocentrism by Nadav Lapid.


A searing, maddening, explosively brainy movie about the mutability and immutability of the self that, appropriately enough, never stops changing shape.” – Justin Chang, The Los Angeles Times
