Description

Must-see viewing for fans of Israeli film. Cut to the Chase is a love letter to cinema and an insightful exploration of what it means to be male in Israeli society. Director Noit Geva has painstakingly assembled fragments of hundreds of films from the 1960s until today, editing them to form a new narrative: the story of the Israeli man, from childhood to adult, from schoolboy to soldier, from son to father and from boyfriend to husband. The result is a dazzling cinematic jigsaw puzzle whose pieces form a detailed portrait of Israeli masculinity as portrayed in film over multiple generations.
