Wild Kids

Wild Kids

Hidden behind heavy metal doors of an old Jerusalem bomb shelter, lies a tiny animation studio. Every week several children of Russian immigrants meet to create a colorful carnival of monsters and earthquakes. “Wild Kids” illuminates the subversive world of two talented teenage artists, Zalman and Aharon, and accompanies them over a period of one year, as they discover their own identities. Zalman must decide whether to stay in Israel and Aharon strives for recognition of his radical artistic path. The studio leader, Max, lives art as an alternative way of life. The images they create together are integrated into their uncompromising world view.
