When a group of best friends in Tel Aviv gather to watch the international music competition Universong, they are less than impressed by the official Israeli entry, so they spontaneously create and record their own song on a mobile phone. Soon, it has gone viral, and this makeshift musical entity is an international success, and on its way to a head-to-head competition with the Russian team, on TV around the world. This campy, glorious bit of fun is inspired by Almodovar and features great tunes and (a rarity for Israeli cinema) plenty of laughs. (Israel, 2014, 100m, DCP, Strand Releasing)
