Israel 2011, 100 min
Hebrew with English subtitles
Director: Nadav Lapid
Cast: Yiftach Klein, Yaara Pelzig, Michael Moshonov, Menashe Noy


“A boldly conceived and bracingly told political drama” (The Hollywood Reporter).

This explosive film was acclaimed by Film Comment and The Village Voice as one of the best films of 2011. Yaron (Yiftach Klein) is part of an elite Israeli anti-terrorism unit that is pitted against a group of young anarchists. Tackling Israeli machismo, as well as the country’s growing economic inequalities, Policeman has gained much international attention and controversy for its subject matter and characterizations, as well as its bold cinematic approach. “An experiment in tone that posits a new direction for Israeli cinema, The Policeman is bathed in cool emotional detachment deliberately juxtaposed against its operatic story.” (National Centre for Jewish Film)
