THE LONERS (Ha'Bodedim)



Inspired by true events that took place in an Israeli military prison in 1997, The Loners tells of two Russian-speaking immigrants who serve in the army and desire to assimilate into Israeli society. Through unforeseen events, they are accused of treason. Although innocent, their demand for a retrial falls on deaf ears. Increasingly desperate as they lose their freedom and dignity in prison, they attempt one last-ditch effort to be heard. The Loners is the new long-awaited feature by Renen Schorr, who has influenced a whole generation of young Israeli filmmakers through the world-renowned Sam Spiegel Film School in Jerusalem, which he founded and has led for more than 20 years. Schoor also co-founded the Israeli Film Fund.

The Loners was nominated for 11 Israeli Academy Awards.
