Synopsis
Even more provocative than his Berlinale Golden Bear-winning Synonyms (43rd), Nadav Lapid releases his anguish and rage against state-mandated oppression of artistic freedom in his latest work. The Israeli writer-director invests his alter-ego into Y, a renowned filmmaker who is invited by a young but rule-bound cultural officer to a screening of his film in a desert town. There he confronts intense loss and sorrow from three directions: his military past, his late beloved mother, and his irredeemable homeland.
