Winner of the Best First Film Award at the Jerusalem Film Festival last year, Doubtful is a powerful social drama based on director-writer Eliran Elya’s experience working with youth at risk. Assi, a struggling filmmaker and poet from Tel Aviv, is ordered to perform community service at a rehabilitation centre for young offenders. Despite their initial suspicions, Assi soon forms strong bonds with the teenagers, and especially with bright but troubled Eden, whose life Assi is determined to change.

Warning: Film contains violence.
