A multi-award-winning* and hilarious short film from New Zealand, released in 2006.
Five mobsters sit in a diner and pass the time between jobs by shooting the shit. One of them suggests that the story of "Little Red Riding Hood" is actually a morality tale about sex-education. When the others don't believe him, he retells the story as it was meant to be told.
Tarantino-mashes-up-with-Brothers-Grimm in this dark and intensely funny fantasy/comedy that will change the way you look at fairytales forever!
"BIG BAD WOLVES" has just screened as part of a retrospective programme at the prestigious CLERMONT FERRAND INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL in February 2011.

PRAISE FOR "BIG BAD WOLVES"
"There are many qualities to this film I really admire - most notably, its complex assembly and its ambition. This a short that doesn't take the easy way out in terms of concept, design, or execution. The film making here is self-assured, and the assembly of the film is well-considered and propulsive." - AintItCoolNews.com
"It mixes humour, quite a bit of philosophy about morality, and the requisite horror elements, all in a tightly woven 13 minutes of at times insane visuals...Singh is arresting with his visuals and you may need a second viewing to actually fully appreciate the narrative he's laying down for us." - ScaryMinds.com
PUSH is a Short film based on the theme of Time, Loss, and Redemption. It was recently nominated for Best Action Short of the Year at the Action on Film Festival in Pasadena California and also for Best Special Effects.
