The Cutoff Man
Menatek Ha-maim | Idan Hubel, 2012
Israel | Hebrew with English Subtitles | 76 minutes

U.S. Premiere! Director Idan Hubel in person at both screenings!

First-time writer/director Idan Hubel has crafted a poignant and compelling family drama around a down-on-his-luck man who takes up an unlikely profession—he cuts off the water supply to people who don’t pay their bills. The more Gaby cuts off, the more money he makes; like a thief, he sneaks into backyards to do his dirty work, receiving the scorn of the neighborhood. This is a moving portrait of a man (played by multi-talented Moshe Ivgi) caught between the torment of his thankless task and the need to support his family.
