A winner of three prizes at the Jerusalem Film Festival and a special jury prize at Locarno, this stunning first feature hinges on the intertwined machinations of an elite anti-terrorist police unit and a group of wealthy young anarchists on a collision course with each other. Provocative and highly topical, Policeman captures the flashpoints in Israeli society between the haves and have-nots, contrasting opposing societal forces and finally pitting them against each other in a narrative that’s both thrilling drama and heavy with portent.
