“ZERO MOTIVATION”– EXCLUSIVE NEW YORK ENGAGEMENT DECEMBER 3-16

zero motivation
“FULL OF UNEXPECTED TWISTS AND TURNS!
Inventively recasts conflict in decidedly non-heroic, absurdist white-collar terms…
In this militaristic Office Space, the mayhem can only escalate.”
—Ronnie Scheib, VARIETY
“WONDERFULLY DROLL AND VICIOUS.”
—Michael Fox, FANDOR

A box office smash in Israel and 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. Pencil-pushers in the Human Resources Office, best friends Zohar (Dana Ivgy) and Daffi (Nelly Tagar) spend their time playing video games, singing pop songs, jousting with stationery and dreaming of Tel Aviv. The indolent twosome are watched over by their senior officer, Rama (Shani Klein), who aspires to a higher position and a significant military career, but with a platoon of unskilled, idle, female soldiers without any drive under her charge, her ambitions are constantly thwarted. With shifts of tone that go from slapstick to satiric to horrifying with fluid ease, and with a superb supporting cast of characters, ZERO MOTIVATION is destined to be one of the most talked about films of the year.
