Nominated for 10 Ophirs (Israel’s version of the Oscars), Jonathan Gurfinkel‘s “S#x Acts” took home only one statue, but in the category where it likely mattered most: Best Actress. Sivan Levy leads the provocative film with the kind of performance that requires both confidence and vulnerability, and both those qualities are on display in this exclusive clip from the film.
Co-starring Eviatar Mor, Roy Nik and Niv Zilberberg, the story follows naïve teen Gili who, eager to fit in at a new school and run with the right crowd, starts hooking up with the most popular guys, even allowing herself to be photographed and filmed. But it’s the start down a slippery slope that finds her boundaries and limits pushed. The film clearly touches upon a number of contemporary issues, and in this scene, we witness how social dynamics already start to shift once sex surfaces between classmates and friends.
“S#x Acts” is now playing in limited release and is currently available on iTunes and VOD. Watch below.
