The extraordinary first feature film of the Documentary filmmaker, Zohar Melinek Ezra (“Spectrums” 2017) & The Israeli/Berliner visual artist Roey Victoria Heifetz.
The story of Victoria, 36, who is in the middle of a gender-affirmation surgery in which she learns to experience her identity in a new way.
Victoria is seeking release from the daily burden of the body.
During the course of one night, we accompany her to an intimate and difficult exploration that challenges the boundaries of body and soul. Third Body is a pure artistic experience that gives a feeling of watching a realistic piece of life, and not a feature film. Third Body takes the full attention of the audience throughout its entire 75 emotionally charged minutesץ There is no doubt this is one of the boldest original Israeli cinematic creations made in the last few years.
