The actor, Lior Ashkenazie explains how an entire day of filming surrounded the use of the fake hand and how much blood to put on it
What happens when the Israeli film industry diverts from the usual introspective look into the conflict and dives into new genres- this time a comic, psychological thriller? Navot Papushado and Aharon Keshale, two Israeli filmmakers wanted to break the usual Israeli film mold and produced, “Big, Bad Wolves” to enthusiastic audiences abroad.
This dynamic duo, who previously produced the first proclaimed Israeli horror film, “Rabies, Rabies” had had enough of movies about the political situation and dysfunctional families. They wanted to have fun.
Aharon Keshale thinks it is time to appeal to the younger generation of Israeli film viewers who enjoy Hollywood Blockbusters. “Big, Bad Wolves” is a horror film with comic elements. The actor, Lior Ashkenazie explains how an entire day of filming surrounded the use of the fake hand and how much blood to put on it. Working on a film of this kind is a joyful experience, “Like kindergarten for actors”.
Before reaching theatres in Israel, “Big Bad Wolves” was screened at various impressive
Film Festivals in the US. SU The film got great reviews and people stood in long lines to be the first to view the new Israeli film. Even the most critical audiences received the film with incredible enthusiasm. Navot Papushado could not believe the standing ovations and the cries from the audience, “Big, Bad Wolves”! “It was amazing to see 800 people standing and cheering with such love for an Israeli film!” They won the prizes for best film and script in the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival.
Yes, the proposals are pouring in from Hollywood, but at this stage, Navot Papushado and Aharon Keshale want to concentrate on revolutionizing Israeli cinema.
