Chained film still

This intense, emotionally charged drama follows Rashi, a Tel Aviv cop with a pathological need to control those around him. After a routine police stop goes awry, Rashi is accused of sexual assault, and his life spirals out of control. Increasingly desperate, he becomes more and more aggressive toward his wife and rebellious step-daughter. A blistering examination of toxic masculinity in modern-day Israel, Chained won top prizes at the Jerusalem Film Festival earlier this year.

“A powerful, often uncomfortable scrutiny of machismo given free rein through a policeman’s uniform, and a bleak picture of the meaning of love.”
