Euphoria is a new ten-part drama series for adults written by Ron Leshem and directed by Dafna Levin, to air on HOT3 at the end of November.
Seventeen is the new thirty. Forty is the new twenty five. Parenthood is dead, and city life was not meant for teenagers. Euphoria portrays a sexy, troubling, and bold profile of the teens of the nineties, within a raging drama going on behind teenagers' closed doors. In a visual cinematic dialogue reminiscent of "Elephant" or "Kids", whirling with dialogues like those in "Trainspotting", Euphoria presents the impossibilities of age, through tumultuous love stories and suspense. The series' protagonists live in internet fantasies, drug-induced hallucinations, masturbatory illusions, schizophrenic and traumatic disorders, narcissistic dreams – in fact, they live everywhere except reality. Reality has already been done and is boring, and faced with real life, they are unripe fruit that has already fallen to the ground. Lost and hurt, vulnerable and thrill-seeking, they become a community in a city of lonely individuals. Together, they seek euphoria, and are thrown from euphoria to paranoia. An innocent youth escapes a jeep that chases him down in front of a night-club. It's a manhunt. The wounded boy falls to the ground. He manages to plead "it wasn't me" before the driver, also a youth, picks him up and stabs him to death. The series protagonists were all there that night, unacquainted to each other.
With: Dekel Adin, Roni Dloumi, Maor Sweitzer, Dolev Masika, Amit Erez, Avi Mazliach, Uriel Gette, and more.
