“A chilling political fairy tale for adults.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“The boldest Israeli film I’ve seen this year.” – Filmmaker Magazine
Land of the Little People might seem a harmless children’s movie at first, but in fact, it is a stunning critique of the violent culture in which we live and educate our children today. The film follows a group of boys and girls who wage a brutal war against two army deserters when the latter take over their territory. Inspired by the classic Lord of the Flies, Yaniv Berman’s debut feature is a damning, important study of war and its corrupting powers.
