Guy is a young man who efficiently aims his camera both in Israel and in the occupied territories of Palestine.
Selected in the Pardi di domani International competition 2018
Out is a highly political, violent and controversial film: after premiering in Locarno, it was the cause of pressures by the Israeli Minister of Culture to the Haifa International Film Festival, where it was scheduled to play. Taking the looks of a documentary film, Sahar constructs a portrait of the routine of a young man. Guy is a soldier who regularly participates in the process of “mapping”, a kind of intimidation tactics of the Israeli army aimed at the Palestinian population.
