Description

Nadav Lapid’s follow-up to Policeman (MSPIFF 2012) is a unique emotional tempest centered on a teacher’s intellectual adoration of her young student. In a world that does not appreciate artists, sensitive souls don’t stand a chance, Nira, a poetry-loving kindergarten teacher, discovers 5 year-old Yoav, a genius who spontaneously creates poetry far beyond his conceptual capacity. Her love of poetry and her appreciation (and perhaps jealousy) for Yoav’s savant-like talents spark a complex relationship.
