Tikkun

Israel, 2015
Drama

Synopsis

Haim-Aaron is an ultra-Orthodox religious scholar from Jerusalem whose talent and devotion are envied by all. One evening, following a self-imposed fast, he collapses and loses consciousness.

Our take

Written in high contrast, impressionistic images, Avishai Sivan’s sophomore film Tikkun is a rare immersion into an Israeli Orthodox Jewish community. One young man’s near-death experience sets him on a path of discovery in this darkly dreamlike intimation of a crisis of faith and sexuality.
