Aharon Keshales

Director of Big Bad Wolves, Israel

Q: What film inspired you to start a career as a filmmaker?

A: The Good, the Bad & the Ugly (Sergio Leone, 1966). Tuco is still the greatest character ever written for the big screen and Eli Wallach’s role in this movie is still the best performance ever to be captured on film.

A: As a writer, the only audience you can have in mind is yourself.

Q: What memorable events happened during the production of Big Bad Wolves?

A: Recording our original soundtrack with The London Metropolitan Orchestra at Air Studios, London and living in a studio basement with four of Israel's most prominent actors for two weeks.

Q: What did you learn from working on Big Bad Wolves?

A: An epic film works best when you make it as small as you can.

Q: If you could work with any actor, living or dead, who would it be?

A: Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef and Eli Wallach.
