Three divorced middle aged men with glasses work together in a small, failing insurance agency located in the rented apartment of the manager. The film begins on December 31, the last day of the year – and the most stressful one for an insurance company. Although highly intelligent, holding a strong sense of humor, and well educated, the threesome (led by the father of the director himself) have absolutely no idea about running a business. Their company is losing a good deal of money and is continually on the verge of bankruptcy. ‘The Worst Company in the World’ affectionately and humorously stages the film director Regev Contes in his attempts to join this motley crew at the onset of the recession, and save his father’s collapsing firm.
Regev Contes, director and writer, graduate Bezalel Academy of Art, Jerusalem. His first short film ‘Chapter 10,953’ won the First Prize at the Israeli First Channel Short Films Festival and was also a finalist at the Jerusalem International Film Festival. Contes also makes films for The Moments Project for Jerusalem International Film Festival – ‘Wanted’ (Moments 2004), ‘The Souvenir Shop’ (Moments 2005).
