Amaseffer To Write Score For Altalena Film

Israeli holy metallers AMASEFFER have sent BW&BK the following update:

"After negotiations with a production company in Israel it was decided that Amaseffer will write the full score soundtrack for the Israeli movie Altalena. The movie is done and edited so next week (December 2nd) Amaseffer will start the writing process for the full score which will be recorded and edited at Amaseffer's own studios in Tel-Aviv."

"The band have formed a new legal company named: Amaseffer Soundtrack Productions. The sole purpose of the company will be writing movie soundtracks to productions all over the world regardless the band's Exodus trilogy (more news regarding that coming soon)."

"The historical docudrama Altalena directed by Eli Cohen. It tells the story of the Altalena, a munitions ship brought to Israel by the Irgun (the pre-state underground militia led by Menachem Begin) during the War of Independence, and the dispute that erupted between prime minister David Ben-Gurion (played by Yossi Kantz) and Menachem Begin (Yoram Hatav). Ben-Gurion ordered the shelling of the ship by the fledgling Israel Defense Forces."

"Moti Lerner wrote the screenplay, and the film is being produced by Riki Shelah and Zvi Shapira, with a budget provided by Keren Makor (the main investor), Keshet Television and the Israel Film Foundation. It has not yet been decided whether the film will be broadcast on TV or screened in theaters."
