Israel takes a bold and very bloody step deeper into genre film making. FrightFest has announced that this festival will spotlight not only "Cannon Fodder", but also another Israeli film. This would be the much talked about thriller "Big Bad Wolves" by Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado. "Cannon Fodder" will be the very first official Israel full length zombie film ever.
"Cannon Fodder is an independent action horror film directed by Eitan Gafny, which has already toured more than a few international festivals, but only now lands its first major one. The movie takes a fun poke at the bac "Israeli military drama" premise, while taking its cues from the clasc action B movies of the 80's. Its title is also a nice throwback to the famous American company that made those movies, Cannon Films, that at its heyday was headed by Israeli management.
Security operative Doron takes on one last mison: to go to Lebanon and capture Number 3 in the terrorist organisation of Hezbollah. With an elite force behind him, Doron soon discovers that reality is not so mple. A new and unknown enemy is to be dealt with - and Hezbollah are the last thing on his mind.
Doron has to deal with a ticking clock in the form of extenve Israeli Defense Force attack and a ravening, totally unpredictable enemy. But now that his enemy has changed its face, it's up to him and his unit to wage a new war, a different war, to find an antidote, and get back across the border before the Middle East conflict is changed forever."
Cannon Fodder will screen at FrightFest on August 24. Check out the trailer below.
