Director Nadav Lapid’s muscular and gripping new film Policeman thrusts viewers directly into the myriad tensions of Israeli society. Thirty-something Yaron (Yiftach Klein) is part of an elite anti-terrorism police unit, tacitly allowed to perform undercover assassinations against enemies of the state. Lapid’s ambitious and provocative film won the special jury prize at the Locarno Film Festival and three awards at the Jerusalem International Film Festival.
