People That Are Not Me (Anashim Shehem Lo Ani)

People That Are Not Me

Joy is a young woman living in Tel Aviv who has a love-hate relationship with its casual sex scene. After failed attempts to get her ex back, Joy instead becomes infatuated with Nir, a chatty intellectual who says and does whatever he wants.

Dealing with themes of urban loneliness and isolation, People That Are Not Me explores the lives of young people in Tel Aviv who yearn for intimacy and are also terrified by it; who talk endlessly but never say anything authentic. Written, directed by, and starring, Israeli filmmaker, Hadas Ben Aroya.

Note: For mature audiences. Contains nudity and sex scenes.
