Discussion with Lead Actor Shai Avivi:


Born in Acre, one of the oldest cities in the world, Avivi studied producing and directing at Tel Aviv University’s Dept. of Film & Television, but wound up acting in most of his classmates’ short projects. After graduation, he became part of the hugely successful satirical sketch show “The Chamber Quintet.” TV series followed, making him a household name.


Avivi, who loves to cook, won the 2015 celebrity season of Israel’s “MasterChef,” creating only vegetarian dishes. “It was a great experience to be on TV and not act,” he says. In addition to film roles in features and shorts, Avivi writes and performs a stage show with his wife, comprising bittersweet sketches about their married life called “Happily Ever After.” They are aiming to bring it to Los Angeles. He’s an activist for animal rights and green causes. Moreover, he’s an artist painting on wood he finds in the trash.


He is an actor and producer, known for One Week and a Day (2016), Here We Are (2020) and Pillars of Smoke (2009). He won Best Actor in the 2020 Awards of the Israeli Film Academy.
