Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #35. Nadav Lapid’s Micro Robert

Micro Robert

Director: Nadav Lapid
Writer: Nadav Lapid

Israeli director Nadav Lapid is set to make his third film, Micro Robert, in France. Following his 2011 debut Policeman and 2014’s The Kindergarten Teacher (read review), which premiered out of competition at Critics’ Week in Cannes (and was distributed by Kino Lorber in the US mid-2015), Lapid has become one of the most notable new auteurs out of Israel. His next project is described as a long gestating project based on the filmmaker’s own experiences in Paris a decade ago, and is said to be a departure in tone from his last film. The US trades advertised Lapid as being ‘set’ to film in August of 2015, but the current production status is unclear.

Cast: TBA.

Production Co./Producers: Les Films des Tournelles’ Anne-Dominique Toussaint, Pie Films

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. TBD (domestic/international).

Release Date: Depending on when filming wraps, we’re unsure where the project will land, though Lapid would certainly be welcome to return to Cannes or Locarno (where he won the grand jury prize in 2011).
