Driver (Lifney Hazikaron)

Driver

Nachman lives in Bnei Brak, the northeastern suburb of Tel Aviv populated largely by ultra-Orthodox Jews. He works nights as an driver for needy Orthodox Jews, bringing them to Bnei Brak's well-off residents. But he does more than drive, coaching his passengers in telling heart-rending stories to loosen the purse strings of the rich. In the mornings, he returns home to his small apartment and his 9-year-old daughter Chani. As his double life takes over, Nachman is forced to take Chani with him on his nighttime journeys, with unexpected consequences.

From the creator of Shtisel, Driver premiered at the 2017 Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.
