Winner of the coveted Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Venice International Film Festival and recipient of eight Ophirs at the 2017 Israeli Film Awards including Best Film, Director and Actor, Foxtrot has garnered widespread praise for its unforgettable story which weaves three interconnected narratives into an overarching tale of love and loss, mixing comedy and tragedy in a wholly unique way.
The sophomore feature film from director Samuel Maoz (2009’s Golden Lion winner Lebanon) and Israel’s official Oscar candidate, Foxtrot is a visually bold and emotionally powerful exploration of war, grief and family which unfolds following the death of a young Israeli soldier.
The New Israel Fund Australia will be holding the Melbourne launch of Foxtrot on Thursday, 24 May, at 7pm at Classic Cinemas Elsternwick. The film screening will be followed by a Q & A with film critic Jan Epstein.
