A fancy dinner party descends into madness in this Israeli-American co-production.

Artsploitation Films will release HAPPY TIMES on streaming platforms, Blu-ray and DVD February 9. Filmed in a mix of English and Hebrew, the movie was directed by Michael Mayer and scripted by Mayer and Guy Alal. It stars Michael Aloni, Shani Atias, Iris Bahr, Stéfi Celma, Guy Adler and Liraz Chamami; the synopsis: “An Israeli-American couple invite friends and family over to their Hollywood mansion for a Shabbat dinner party. But a deadly mix of alcohol, inflated egos, inappropriate lust and raging jealousy turns the sedate affair into a cauldron of murderous mayhem.”
