BEST DOCUMENTARY FILM – CESAR 2020
A vertiginous rush.
An extraordinary humanity.
Virtual screening followed by a conversation with the director Yolande Zauberman.
“M” as in Menahem, a child prodigy with a golden voice, abused by members of his community who worshipped him. Fifteen years later, he returned to his hometown of Bnei Brak, the world capital of the ultra-orthodox Jews, to find the culprits. But it is also the return to a world he loved so much, to a road where the word is liberated…. a reconciliation.
