“Startlingly surreal… confirms Avishai Sivan as a distinctive voice in world cinema” – Screen International

Scooping four awards at the Jerusalem Film Festival (Best Feature, Cinematography, Screenplay and Actor) as well as the Special Jury Prize at Locarno, Tikkun is the powerful third feature from young Israeli director Avishai Sivan.

Haim-Aaron, a devout Yeshiva scholar is devoted entirely to study and religion until a near-death experience changes everything. Returning from the brink of death after a freak accident, he throws off the pious trappings of his past to pursue a life of physical pleasure.

Stunningly shot in ethereal black-and-white, Tikkun takes on an eerie, almost supernatural air as it paints a magnetic portrait of one man’s existential crisis of faith.
