Small Budget, Big Screen
Case Study of 'Room 514' by Sharon BAR-ZIV

In the workshop "Small Budget, Big Screen", Sharon BAR-ZIV will talk about how, in times of budget cuts, micro budget film production may be an answer and a possible way to bring a story to the screen.. "BAR-ZIV will discuss a number of key elements that he believes enable the production of a film with a micro-budget."
The film Room 514, inspired by real events, represents a microcosm of the Israeli society and shows the duality of the core values and beliefs of an average Israeli citizen. The story revolves around a young interrogator of Russian origin, who operates in a typical masculine military environment and undergoes a complex and intriguing internal journey.
