A young kid dreams of becoming a boxer. But some dreams are very hard to get.

We’ve all loved comic books when we were kids and we’ve seen them all turn into big successful motion pictures one by one (some more than others). But turning these characters into real people made us lose the powerful exclamations that people can only read about… Two filmmakers felt like bringing that back in a punching way in the edgy short film ‘Streets of Rage’.

Based on an Israeli comic book by the same name from writer Etgar Keret and illustrator Asaf Hanuka. Filmmakers Eran May-Raz and Daniel Lazo – better known for their futuristic viral sensation short film ‘Sight‘ – have turned the comic book into a unique stylish film that combines the best of both worlds.

We had fun contacting Etgar Keret and Asaf Hanuka who loved the idea of making this comic-film and they helped us by reaching out for actors and narrators for the film.

Streets of Rage is a film made on an extremely low budget for the sake of the art and fun. The story is about a young kid’s childhood dream of becoming a boxer. but some dreams are very hard to get.

Basically, we are a very small group of creators that like doing projects together, we loved the original comic and we all wanted to make this film because we simply thought it can make a great story for a short film comic movie.
