Film Movement Enters 'Room 514' at Cannes for North American Distribution

"Room 514"
"Room 514" went to Film Movement for North American distribution out of the Cannes Film Festival. The Israeli psychological thriller, directed by Sharon Bar-Ziv, recently won a special jury mention for Best Narrative Director at Tribeca. "Room 514" is now screening in the ACID program at Cannes. It will open later this year; here's the synopsis and trailer.

A female Israeli soldier is ordered to interrogate an Israeli officer who is alleged to have abused an Arab family. Lower in rank and also a woman, she is barely taken seriously by the haughty man; he only gives her sarcastic answers. Her colleagues, including her lover, advise her to stop the case - because it is too political, too complex and too notorious. Instead, she fastens her teeth in it, in the hope of getting justice for the victims.
