Tikkun (2016): Israeli Filmmaker Avishai Sivan’s Third Feature Wins Award at Locarno Fest

At the 2016 Locarno Film Fest, the Special Jury Prize, the runner-up gong to the Golden Leopard, was presented to Israeli visual artist turned filmmaker Avishai Sivan for his third feature Tikkun.

The religious drama, about an Orthodox academic undergoing a spiritual crisis, played at last month’s Jerusalem Film Fest.

Tikkun received an additional citation from the jury for Shai Goldman’s black-and-white cinematography.
