La Fabbrica

Nadav Lapid

Israel's radical filmmaker and director of Policeman (2011), The Kindergarten Teacher (2014), Synonyms (2019 Berlinale Golden Bear Award) and Ahed’s Knee (last Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize), shatters all visual, narrative, and political norms upon tackling the physical impetus of rebellion.


A comprehensive retrospective of his work (short, mid-length and feature films) in the presence of the director, panel discussions with his artistic collaborators and the filmmaker’s carte blanche screening.


In partnership with the Forum des images who will also pay tribute to the director during the 12th edition of its festival “Un état du monde” (November 12-21th)
