Film Series: Zero Motivation

2014. Israel. Dir: Talya Lavie. With Dana Ivgy, Nelly Tagar. 97 min.

 

It’s been called Orange is the New Black meets M*A*S*H: A group of young women while away their mandatory army time as secretaries on a remote military base, where dying of boredom poses a larger threat than dying in combat. Writer-director Lavie paints a biting portrait of office tedium both humorous and macabre. Presented as part of the Ninth Annual Ring Family Israeli Film Series, featuring speaker Aner Preminger, Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the Center for Jewish Studies.
