Bryn Mawr Film Institute
Director: Sharon bar-Ziv
Four young Israeli soldiers find their reputations at stake pending the resolution of a brutal act of violence towards a civilian. Heading the investigation is Anna, an idealistic Russian-Israeli interrogator assigned to confront an elite IDF officer accused of inhumanely assaulting a Palestinian man from the occupied territories. Against the wishes of her commander, Anna embarks on a dangerous quest for justice as she commits herself to uncovering the truth, no matter the consequences. Inspired by true events, this bold and courageous drama explores the complex intersection between duty, justice, and national identity. Sharon Bar-Ziv's tensely shot Room 514 is a seductive, hair- raising, psychological thriller that won a special jury mention at Tribeca in 2012.
Special Guest: Amy Kronish, author of "World Cinema: Israel" and "Israeli Film: A Reference Guide"
