Aviv (Fucked Up Generation)

Aviv Geffen, the grandson of legendary Moshe Dayan and number one Israeli rockist, is rapidly becoming a mythic figure himself. He was the last person to embrace Rabin before he was assassinated. The charismatic, bisexual singer-songwriter has rapidly become the Jim Morrison or Bob Dylan of his country, a voice that represents peace and integrity for a troubled young generation. Concert footage reveals the depth of feeling that many Israelis have for Aviv: hip, youthful women and men are clearly enamored of his presence.

Directed by Tomer Heymann, this feature documentary follows the life of Aviv Geffen, a controversial Israeli singer whose liberal upbringing led him to refuse to serve in the Israeli military. Geffen has become a spokesperson for the country’s youth, and this film chronicles the rise of his career, his family roots, and how he finds the inspiration to write music.
