COMRADE DOV

COMRADE DOV

Thought-provoking portrait of a unique politician, who refuses to give up, even as reality deals him one cruel blow after another.

synopsis

Goddamned communist. Internal enemy. Privileged Tel Aviv Ashkenazi.
It seems Dov Khenin has been called almost everything during his 13-year tenure as Member of Knesset for the Jewish-Arab party ‘Hadash’.
For years, director Barak Heymann has been following this leading legislator, creating a film that examines the open wounds of contemporary Israeli society: from the forced removal of the residents of Givat Amal to turbulent meetings of the Knesset’s Finance Committee, and down to the violent events at Umm al-Hiran.

Comrade Dov is a surprising, thought-provoking portrait of a unique politician, who refuses to give up even as reality deals him one cruel blow after another
