Policeman is the first feature film from writer/director Nadav Lapid. The film is an Israeli social study distinctly split into two halves. The first half follows the ultra-macho leader of a squad of highly trained operatives who specialize in the neutralization of Arab terrorists. The second half focuses on a group of Jewish student revolutionaries, dissatisfied with the gap between the country's richest citizens and the struggling lower class, who plot to send a message. We see the inevitable confrontation, and hoe the individuals involved react to thee situation presented them. Served with wine and cheese.

Co-Sponsored by TBE Social Action Committee and CA Committee. Awards: 10 wins and 15 nominations, including Best Film, Best Actor, Best Director at Israeli Academy Awards, 2011; Best First Feature Film, Best Israeli Feature Film, Jerusalem Film Festival, 2011. Wine and Cheese served.
