The film, which received the best picture at Israel's Ophir Awards, is now set to be the Jewish State's submission for the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Film.
Navid recently wrapped principal photography in Vancouver on "Brain on Fire," a biographical drama with Chloë Grace Moretz, Carrie-Anne Moss and Richard Armitage, and this spring he was shooting in Morocco with Jonathan Rhys Meyers, John Hurt and Olivia Thirlby in the espionage thriller "Damascus Cover."
