CAL_0216 0225 The City FEBRUARY 15

Step into a hard-boiled world of gumshoes, femme fatales, corrupt cops, and master criminals in this wildly inventive, Israeli neo-noir rap opera. In a decaying city, world-weary, cynical detective Joe (director and creator Amit Ulman) walks gritty streets where shadows hide secrets, and the past lingers like a haunting melody. When old flame Sarah, a nightclub singer, asks for help in locating her vanished sister, Joe is thrust into a perilous, convoluted case with a rising body count. This instant cult-classic, adapted from Ulman’s long-running stage play, melds Bogart-like noir with urban culture, yielding a distinctive dark underworld. Set to a propulsive hip-hop score, the lyrics ingeniously rhyme in both Hebrew and English, adding a lively layer of linguistic wit.
