After winning awards at Fantastic Fest in Austin and Screamfest in Los Angeles, Oren Carmi's acclaimed thriller GOLDBERG & EISENBERG looks set to take 2014 by storm after being selected to screen in official competition at SLAMDANCE in Park City.

Confirming the new wave of 'Hebrew Horror' established by recent Israeli genre films such as Rabies, Big Bad Wolves and Cannon Fodder, "GOLDBERG & EISENBERG" is a darkly comedic thriller about a lonely computer programmer who becomes the victim of a psychopathic stalker and will screen at Slamdance on January 19th and 21st 2014.

"There are numerous points of reference for Carmi’s genre-bending style of filmmaking; the dark deadpan humor and absurdism of the Coen Brothers is an obvious source for comparison. However, this film is coming from an unique and original place. In addition to being a skilled storyteller, Carmi has a special knack for extracting humor out of grave situations. He pushes this scenario into extremely uncomfortable territory without ever losing his grip on the characters and narrative - Rodney Perkins, Fantastic Fest.
