Having risen to fame at Cannes in 1989, in the Perspectives on French Cinema section, with the documentary Caste criminelle, the director came straight back to the Croisette (more specifically to the Directors’ Fortnight) in 1993 with her feature-length fiction debut, Ivan & Abraham.

Shot in Yiddish, M follows Menahem Lang, who beckons us through a secret door to discover his home town, Bneï Brak, "the city of the men in black", the world capital of ultra-Orthodox Jews.

But it’s also a return to the places he loved so much, a rite of passage peppered with incredible encounters and rediscovered rituals... A reconciliation of sorts.

Produced by Charles Gillibert for CG CinémaM was co-produced by Fabrice Bigio, Yolande Zauberman and Déborah Muntzer for Phobics Films. The movie has secured an advance on receipts from the CNC and post-completion support from the Ile-de-France region. The French distribution and international sales are still under negotiation.
