Talya Lavie’s Zero Motivation, a dark comedy/drama about female soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces, has just been released on DVD.
Zero Motivation was the movie of the year in Israel in 2014. It sold more than 600,000 tickets, more than any other movie that played here last year, including Hollywood blockbusters.
Although it takes place on a military base in the Negev, a uniquely Israeli setting, it has struck a chord with audiences around the world. It won the Best Narrative Feature Prize and the Nora Ephron Award at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.
