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.
