Yaron Shani’s CHAINED

69. Berlinale Panorama

16 January 2019

Love Trilogy blurs the lines between fiction and documentary to genuinely create the reality of each character. The actors, mostly non-professional, were asked to live the lives of their fictional characters for the unusual long shooting period of over a year. The script trimmed to the bones of the main plot was constantly enriched by the actors personal experience. This methodology makes the experience of watching the Trilogy extremely unique and profound. The darkest moments surprisingly shine because the viewer is literally placed within each character, understands them without any judgement and feels for them. The honesty of a true connection between the director and his actors and in turn between the characters and the viewers provokes profound empathy.

Each part is complete in itself, while the combination provides a wide-scope picture of the characters’ intersecting lives from different angles and in different times. All three films explore the gender violence. When the decent, well-mannered lives of the characters are broken, brutality and pain stream out of the cracks and vulnerability and tenderness flow.
