“In The City, I aimed to create a world where the power of language is emphasized. Thus, the strength of the characters in the city is primarily measured by their poetic abilities. A rap battle between two characters becomes a verbal duel where the winner is determined not by who is more correct, but by who possesses more linguistic prowess and virtuosity. All the city’s inhabitants fear a notorious criminal named ‘Menashe’, even though no one has seen him. His intimidating reputation is based solely on countless frightening stories about him.” (Amit Ulman)
