Projects in pre-production

  • THE RACER by Kieron J Walsh, producer: EAVE graduate Katie Holly is in pre-production. The plot: It’s 1998, and the early stages of the annual Tour de France have been relocated to Ireland. A Belgian rider in his late thirties, called Dom Chabol, has been one of the best support riders on the Tour for the last 20 years. Dom secretly harbours a desire to wear the yellow jersey – just once – before his career is over. At the start of what will likely be his last Tour, Dom is unceremoniously dropped from the team he has dedicated his life to. His best mate, Sonny, the team masseur, fails to reassure him about his future. However, a chance liaison with Lynn, a young Irish doctor, softens the blow, and Dom starts to accept the idea of civilian life. Nonetheless, as he gears up to go home and to face his estranged sister, a massive doping error knocks another teammate off the Tour, and Dom is thrown back in the saddle. The flick, set to film in Ireland and Luxembourg, is being produced by Katie Holly and Yvonne Donohoe for Irish outfit Blinder Films, Jesus Gonzalez-Elvira for Calach Films (Luxembourg), and Robin Kerremans and Dimitri Verbeeck for Caviar Films (Belgium). The production has received financial support from Screen Ireland, the Film Fund Luxembourg, Eurimages, Screen Flanders, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland’s Sound & Vision Fund and Irish public broadcaster RTÉ.

  • THE ISLAND by EAVE graduate Anca Damian is in development. The Romanian/Belgian co-production is an upside-down Robinson Crusoe story and a contemporary fable set on an island in the Mediterranean Sea. The film will mix 2D and 3D animation in a musical with the music composed by Ada Milea and Alexander Balanescu, who made the music for the acclaimed musical The Island, based on Gellu Naum’s stage play under the same title. Damian and Augusto Zanovello wrote the script. Damian is producing through Aparte Film in co-production with Belgium’s Take Five. The project is supported by Creative Europe Programme – MEDIA and the Romanian Film Centre. The production is set to begin in November 2019 and to wrap in 2020, with the premiere date set for 2021.

German production company Weydemann Bros., who is among Variety’s 2019 Producers to Watch, has unveiled two projects in the works, including an English-language drama written and directed by one of Germany’s most prolific young actresses:

  • FALLING INTO PLACE by Aylin Tezel, producer: EAVE graduate and German National Coordinator Jonas Weydemann is preparing a film with the German actress Aylin Tezel in her directorial debut. The love story set in Scotland and London follows a romance between Kira and Ian, two 30-somethings who meet while on the run from themselves. The script offers a portrait of today’s restless generation as it struggles with such existential questions as: “How do we use the time that is given to us? Who do we share it with? And do we have to chase, escape or let life happen in order to be happy?”. Jonas and brother Jakob Weydemann are currently financing the film and aim to start principal photography next year.
  • NIEMAND IST BEI DEN KÄLBERN by German-Iranian director Sabrina Sarabi, producer: EAVE graduate and German National Coordinator Jonas Weydemann. Based on the successful novel by young German author Alina Herbing, the film follows a young woman living with her boyfriend on a dairy farm in a rural eastern German village who becomes increasingly desperate to break free and move to the city. “It’s a very contemporary story about the young generation in Germany’s former East, and about a young woman,” Jakob Weydemann says. “We already received script funding from regional German funder Filmbüro Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and are now financing and casting the project, to be shot in the German language next [summer].”

STORM now in production

STORM by Oliver Rihs, producer: EAVE graduate Ivan Madeo is shooting. The main character in Storm is idealistic lawyer Barbara Hug, who devotes her life to fighting back against the deplorable prison system in Switzerland in the 1980s. During her struggle, Barbara comes across an unexpected ally: international criminal Walter Storm, nicknamed “the jailbreak king”. One thing leads to another and the feelings that bind these unlikely partners will start to run deeper. STORM is an unconventional love story in which the fight for freedom and the characters’ emotions unashamedly intertwine. Besides the involvement of Zurich-based outfit Contrast Film as the majority producer, STORM is being co-produced by Germany’s Port-au-prince Films (Berlin) and Niama Film Stuttgart. ARTE, Swiss Television SRF, Bayerischer Rundfunk and Teleclub have also boarded this particular venture. The director of photography will be Felix von Muralt, while musician and electronic music producer Beat Solèr will compose the score.

MATTER OUT OF PLACE by Nikolaus Geyrhalter, producer: EAVE graduate Michael Kitzberger is in production. The film is about our garbage that is found in the most remote areas and about the people who try to dispose of it. MATTER OUT OF PLACE takes stock of the spread of man-made garbage into the remotest places on our planet and follows the desperate efforts to overcome the problem. Not only in the sea and on coasts, also in the Arctic, the jungle, high up on the mountains and deep inside the desert, garbage is found almost everywhere in various forms and dimensions, sometimes as whole car wrecks, old TV sets or simply construction rubble, but mostly in the form of disintegrated plastic particles a few millimetres in size. Humanity has handed out its visiting cards thoroughly. With support of: Österreichisches Filminstitut, ORF Film/Fernseh-Abkommen, Filmfonds Wien, Filmstandort Austria.

QUE HICIMOS MAL by Liliana Torres, producer: EAVE graduate and National Coordiantor Spain Maria Zamora is currently being shot in Northern Spain. The film reflects on relationship crises by blending reality and fiction, with the director-screenwriter herself starring as the protagonist. The film’s story tells of how “Lili has been in a steady relationship for a few years. Although everything seems to be running smoothly between her and her partner, there is an underlying despondency in her day-to-day life that is preventing her from being happy. Liliana will revisit her past in order to ask herself: what did we do wrong?” The movie therefore reflects on romantic relationships, the mistakes that couples make and the crises they go through. The film is a production by Matriuska, Avalon and Miss Wasabi. Support comes from TVE, the Regional Government of Galicia and TVG. Shooting kicked off in Galicia at the end of April and will take place on location in Seoane do Courel, Ourense and Vigo for three weeks, before heading to Mexico and Italy in September.

RIDERS by Dominik Mencej, producer: EAVE graduate Miha Cernec, co-producer: EAVE graduate Milan Stojanovic is shooting. The road drama about two best friends in their mid-twenties is the first feature by 32-years-old Slovenian director. The plot: Tomaž and Anton, who have grown up in a small village, decide to transform their mopeds into chopper-like bikes and go on a journey after watching the film Easy Rider. Anton wants to impress his girlfriend, who is studying in the capital and has not written to him in months, while Tomaž seeks religious answers to his visions and hopes that faith will guide him. RIDERS is produced by Miha Cernec through Staragara, in co-production with Croatia’s Antitalent, Bosnia’s Novi film BiH and Serbia’s SENSE production. The project is supported by the Slovenian Film Center, Film Center Serbia, Sarajevo Cinema Foundation, MEDIA – Single Development and the RE-ACT Developing Award. Studio Viba Film provides additional technical support. The project was developed at the First Film First. The shooting, which is planned to last for 33 days, will take place in Slovenia (Ljubljana, Slovenska Bistrica, Ra?e, Sladka Gora, Mala Nedelja, Jeruzalem) and Croatia (Split, Šibenik, Pak Obrovac, Baške Oštarije, Gra?ac) and is expected to be finished by 4 July 2019.

THE ENCOUNTER by Tatia Skhirtladze, co-producer: EAVE + graduate Alexander Dumreicher-Ivanceanu is shooting. Against the backdrop of the Cold War, THE ENCOUNTER reveals intimate stories of four legendary female chess players from Georgia, who revolutionised women's chess across the globe and became Soviet icons of female emancipation. The film is both a rare look into the lives of Nona Gaprindashvili, Nana Alexandria, Maia Chiburdanidze and Nana Ioseliani, and a celebration of their lasting legacy.
‘’I am a woman who was born and grew up in the Soviet Republic of Georgia in the 1980s. Those were times of upheaval and historical transformation. The female chess players, who are in no respect weaker or less successful than men, were leading figures during my childhood. Chess was a symbol for women’s intellectual and personal freedom and empowerment. THE ENCOUNTER is a chess film that does not focus on the technique of the sport so much as the metaphor behind it – the struggles on the road towards self-fulfilment and the revolt against a powerful male-dominated system. By revealing the lives of the almost-forgotten champions beyond their titles and awards, the film establishes an emotional connection, letting the audience think things through for themselves,” Tatia Skhirtladze told FNE.
The film is co-produced by Berg Hammer Film (Austria) with Amour Fou Vienna from Austria, 1991 Productions from Georgia and Playground Produkcija from Serbia. It received a production grant from the Georgian National Film Center and it was also supported by Linda Jensen from Silver Bullet, BKA, Film Industry Support Austria, Austrian public TV station ORF, FIlm Center Serbia, EWA Network - Women in FIlm Award and Eurimages. Shooting is taking place in Tbilisi, Georgia and Rhodes. Two days of shooting are also planned in Vienna.

CITY ON THE RIVER now in post-production

CITY ON THE RIVER by Viesturs Kairiss, producer: EAVE + graduate Kestutis Drazdauskas is on post-production. Billed as “a tragicomedy about the ultimate triumph of human virtues in the face of systematic, institutional inhumanity”, and based on the novel of the same name by Gunars Jankovskis, City on the River covers the period between the late 1930s and the end of World War II.
It features non-professional actor Davis Suharevskis in the role of Ansis, a young sign-painter in demand by both the communist and the fascist regimes, whose life is about to change owing to the impending war. Ansis is also caught in a bizarre love triangle – he is in love with a Jewish girl, Zizla, but a marriage is impossible owing to religious and social prejudices. Then, Ansis falls for Latvian girl Naiga and will encounter numerous obstacles in both relationships. Will Ansis manage to hold on to his ideals, or will the war break him?
The film is a co-production by Latvia's Ego Media, the Czech Republic's 8Heads Productions and Lithuania's Artbox. Post-production will be carried out in the Prague-based studios Sleepwalker and Magic Lab. The movie was shot in Riga, Latgale (East Latvia) and Lithuania for 37 days between February 2018 and April 2019.
