Keoma/Black directed by Aviv Kosloff
Black is a twisted story of vengeance and betrayal that starts with two Santas running to their vintage getaway car after robbing a gas station. As the driver steps on the gas paddle, the very bad Santa, played by Ottokar Lehrner, lets the loot go to his head. His accomplice, played by Kat Frankie, is still in shock. Quickly and violently we realize that this triangle of partners in crime is like a time bomb waiting to explode. When the 1970 Chevy runs out of gas, and trapped between the gun holding Santa and the baseball bat waiving driver (played by Chris Klopfer), Kat has to manage to survive the night.
