    In Meni Yaesh’s provocative drama, Avi (Roy Assaf) and his testosterone-fueled gang of Orthodox extremists terrorize Tel Aviv’s Bat Yam neighborhood, harassing “immodestly” clothed women, store owners open on Shabbat, and Arabs who stray onto their turf. Ari begins to question his behavior when beautiful, independent Miri (Rotem Zisman-Cohen) moves to the neighborhood. (Israel, 2012, 98m, Hebrew w/ English subtitles, Director/Writer: Meni Yaesh)
