Synopsis:

Winner of the Best Narrative Feature Award at the Tribeca Film Festival, Zero Motivation is a unique, sharply observed, sometimes dark and often hilarious portrait of everyday life for a unit of young, female soldiers in a remote Israeli desert outpost. Playing out like M*A*S*H meets Orange is the New Black, Talya Lavie's brilliant debut details the power struggles of three women with different agendas and very little to do. Best friends Zohar and Daffi spend their time playing video games, singing pop songs, jousting with stationery, and dreaming of Tel Aviv, while their aspiring senior officer, Rama, dreams of a higher position and a significant military career. With a platoon of unskilled, idle, female soldiers without any drive under her charge, Rama's ambitions for promotion are constantly thwarted.

This screening is supported by the Embassy of Israel in Singapore as part of the 27th Israel Film Festival
