Dissolution is Nina Menkes’ extraordinary, experimental adaptation of Dostoyevsky’s novel Crime and Punishment. Following a young Jew living in a predominantly Arab section of Tel Aviv, the story loosely transplants the Russian novel to a present-day region paralyzed by violence. Filmed in high-definition black and white, Menkes’s often exquisite compositions—a single, attenuated shot of the aftermath of a car crash is a miracle of choreography—drive a narrative mired in poverty and spiritual desperation. In English and Hebrew with English subtitles.  For Zoom link:
