Winner of the Silver Lion at the 2017 Venice Film Festival, Foxtrot is one of the most talked-about Israeli films of recent years. Following from director Samuel Maoz’s award-winning debut feature Lebanon (2009), Foxtrot also explores the devastating effects of the conflict and Israel’s political impasse, this time on a Tel Aviv family whose son serves near the northern border. With its three-act tragedy structure and bold cinematography, Foxtrot is an unmissable cinematic experience. A special preview screening before the film’s long-awaited release in the UK.

Warning: Film contains violence.
