For Ze'ev, loneliness has never been this tangible. In his sixties, his wife leaves him for another man, and he remains alone with his thoughts, mistakes, jealousy and a faint lust for life and love. Straight from the heart of this restless life, a sudden birth might arrive, to which there was no preceding pregnancy; or perhaps, it won't arrive at all...
Menachem Edelman Landoi was born in Jerusalem in 1982 to a Religious Zionist family. He abandoned the faith, and studied at Sam Spiegel Film & Television School in Jerusalem. Edelman Landoi was painting since an early age, and he specializes in Hyper-Realistic oil painting. He's a member of the Israel Association of Illustrators, and his paintings were exhibited in many shows in Israel. Sudden Birth and a Wolf is his first film.
