ABC’s of Death 2
Click the top view icon to see the details

ABC's of Death consists of 26 different genre filmmakers from all around the world, assign each of them one of the alphabet’s 26 letter, and give them a few thousand dollars and only one guideline: direct a short film about some kind of death. At Dream Catcher we produced the filming of "F is for Falling" as well as the post production visual effects. Directed by Israeli filmmakers Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, the country’s first internationally recognized genre directors who’ve broken through via the 2010 slasher movie subversion Rabies and last year’s Quentin Tarantino-approved Big Bad Wolves. Their segment, “F is for Falling,” doesn’t have a single laugh, nor does it gleefully revel in gory homicide. Instead, it’s a politically and socially conscious meditation on the strained relations between Israel and Palestine. The tension is seen through the fateful interaction between a female Israeli soldier, whose parachute has her trapped in a tree, and the young, armed Palestinian boy who stumbles across her.
