The Department of Special Objects
A comic children’s series documenting one of the most highly confidential places of employment in Israel – the department of special objects, an archive where all the great and important historical objects of the state are kept. A new historical object arrives at the department in each episode, which the department employees have to prepare for exhibition. The department staff is made up of an ensemble of characters, all with a wide giving heart, but all lacking in terms of clarity and logic.
A comic narrative stands at the center of each episode, and the series in effect presents a fun and original way to learn about many central aspects of Israeli history.
A comic series telling the tale of a failing supermarket in a backwards town and following the daily events that take place within the supermarket.
The series goes into the details of everything we don’t know about the behind the scenes occurrences in the supermarket – the relationships between the employees forced to work in a place they feel no loyalty for, the customers with their baseless and petty demands, the management’s abusive attitude towards the employees, and the private lives of the workers at the bottom of the employment hierarchy.
Type: Original Formats
Three consecutive stories, The Substitute, The Virgin and The Commander, recount the events of an administration office at a remote army base in the Israeli desert. The stories compose a military epic of power-struggles, intrigues and a friendship on trial.
But unlike the traditional war genre films, Zero Motivation brings to center-stage the military’s female clerical staff. The film depicts the three soldiers’ real – and surreal, comical – and gloomy journey inside the maze of military bureaucracy. For a staple-gun in the first act is sure to go off in the third.
