NEW YORK (AP) — A film about a self-documenting man amid the Libyan revolution and a dark comedy about female Israeli soldiers have taken top honors at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Awards handed out Thursday at the New York festival were led by best narrative feature winner “Zero Motivation,” a portrait of young female soldiers at a remote desert base in Israel. The category’s jury hailed the directorial debut of Talya Lavie as the emergence of “a new, powerful voice.”

Marshall Curry’s “Point and Shoot” won best documentary. The film follows a shy Baltimore native who joined up with Libyan rebels in 2011. He films himself through much of his adventures, including a six-month stint in solitary confinement.

The 13th annual Tribeca Film Festival concludes Sunday.
