Set in a remote desert military base, a platoon of young women soldiers, all Israeli conscripts, serve out their time playing computer games, singing pop songs, and conspiring to get transferred to Tel Aviv — while endlessly serving coffee to the men who run the show. Here’s an Israeli film filled with funny, quick-witted, zany women who wield their staple guns like automatic weaponry. If there is a war going on, it’s one against boredom, bad uniforms, dopey rules, and doing everything in triplicate. Debut filmmaker Talya Lavie is Israel’s answer to Lena Dunham: ZERO MOTIVATION has had rave reviews and huge audiences. Winner of the top prize for narrative world cinema at the Tribeca Film Festival. (C) Zeitgeist

"Melancholy climactic trajectory aside, Zero Motivation is primarily very funny, thanks both to its game cast and Lavie's flair for unexpected gags"

-Vadim Rizov, AV Club

"Zero Motivation proves something more than a piercing army/office comedy."

-Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

Winner of both the Best Narrative and Nora Ephron Prizes at 2014 Tribeca Film Festival
