WORLD NARRATIVE COMPETITION WINNER: ZERO MOTIVATION
The Founders Award for Best Narrative Feature goes to Zero Motivation:
Talya Lavie steps into the spotlight with a dark comedy about everyday life for a unit of young female Israeli soldiers. At the human resources office at a remote desert base, women bide their time pushing paper, battling for the top score in Minesweeper, and counting the minutes until they can return to civilian life. Amidst their boredom
and clashing personalities, issues of commitment—from friendship to love and country—are handled with humor and sharp-edged wit.
