The National Center for Jewish Film’s Jewishfilm.2015 – “The Kindergarten Teacher”

May 15, 2015 $10.00 - $12.00 0

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE – Lauded at the Cannes Film Festival and fresh from Lincoln Center’s New Directors/New Films, Nadav Lapid’s follow-up to his explosive debut film The Policeman (NCJF’s JF.2012), is a brilliant, inventive drama told in this auteur’s singular voice. Tel Aviv kindergarten teacher Nira (Sarit Larry) becomes obsessed with one of her charges, Yoav (Avi Shnaidman), a gentle 5-year-old with an otherworldly gift for declaiming perfectly formed poems on love and loss. Yoav’s verses—Lapid’s own childhood poems—awaken in Nira a protective, but increasingly extreme, impulse to shield him from a banal, materialistic culture that has little use for poetry and art. Beautiful, elusive, and unsettling, The Kindergarten Teacher will stay with you long after you’ve left the theater. “Often thrilling to behold…confirms Lapid as a talent to be reckoned with.” –Hollywood Reporter
