Documenting for the first time the prestigious women field officers School, Filmmaker Yael Katzir, herself a former officer, is following for five month's five of the fifty women cadets in training. They cope with pressures, challenges and fears. They discover their limits and needs for friendships as they tough it out to the finish line. It is a story about young women aged 18, during compulsory military service in Israel.Written by
"Company Jasmine" shows us something most people have never seen before. Few have seen what it is like to train to become a soldier, fewer to become an officer in one the world;s most prestigious militaries, and fewer yet what the experience is like for women. Not only that but the film itself is done extremely well. It also suprisingly presents the issue of women on the front lines entirely objectively, encompassing both points of view and examining multiple perspectives. You would normally expect such a documentary to be firmly biased but "Jasmine" does not do so and is all the better for it.
