Directed by Gal Sagy
This narrative short film tells the story of an urban Israeli woman jogging down the street and minding her own business, when a strange man abruptly and inappropriately touches her. Neta, the woman played brilliantly by newcomer Rachel Yaron, faces the decision to either confront her attacker or let it go. The story that unfolds in this film speaks to the struggle that every woman faces in situations like this and what it means to stand up for what is right. Gal Sagy’s delicate approach to the subject plays out wonderfully on screen and is both empowering and sensitive to the subject matter at hand. It’s a powerful and apt representation of what it’s like for women in the modern age to be objectified by men and how women can stand up to a misogynistic culture that permeates society at large.
