Yolande Zauberman opens the 41st edition of Cinéma du réel

Dec 13, 2018

Yolande Zauberman will open the next edition of Cinéma du réel with an exceptional premiere of her new film M.

M for Menahem, a child prodigy with a golden voice, abused by some members of his community who worshiped him. 15 years later, he comes back on the crime scene: Bnei Brak, world capital city of the ultra-orthodox Jews, the "City of the Men in Black". It is also a return to a world he deeply loved, a path where speech is freed... a reconciliation. Special Jury Prize - Locarno Festival 2018.

“The film in the making gives wings to Menahem, frees speech and allows to breach quite a few rules of the ultra-orthodox community in which the hero takes the filmmaker. However the filmmaker is not only following her protagonist in a pure tradition of Direct Cinema; she condenses, concentrates and lets surface situations of significance and sensitiveness, of universality and singularity. Yolande Zauberman’s filmmaker's movement is happy, intense, liberating, it bears a political dimension and carries our imagination.” Catherine Bizern, Cinéma du réel Artistic Director.

M (France, 2018, 106'), a film by Yolande Zauberman, produced by Charles Gillibert, coproduced by Yolande Zauberman, will be theatrically released in France on March 20th 2018 (ditributor : New Story).

The focus we're dedicating to her takes meaning between our two retrospectives, "Fabriquer le cinéma" on filmmakers ways of making, and "Front(s) populaire(s)" on the power of images and the capacity to worry the power in place.

This focus will complete this homage to the documentary work of the French filmmaker and will enlighten her work, a singular confrontation between intimacy and politics:

Apartheid in South Africa with Classified People, 1987, portrait of a wandering jew with Un juif à la mer, 2005, or the possibility to live and desire together in Israel in Would You Have Sex With an Arab?, 2010. Yolande Zauberman has never ceased, since her beginnings, to account for History by filming the destiny of her contemporaries.
