FRANKY FIVE STAR by Birgit Möller, producer: PUENTES graduate Jamila Wenske is in development. The story, penned by Knut Mierswe and Möller, centres on the title character, Franky, a 24-year-old woman who suffers from multiple-personality disorder and seems unpredictable and erratic to everyone around her. And on top of that, she’s having a hard time managing the four other characters living inside her, Leni, Frank, Ella and Frau Franke, who seem to dwell in an old-fashioned hotel in the middle of nowhere but actually take turns inhabiting Franky’s body, occasionally disrupting her attempts at a love life, too. The film is being produced by Jamila Wenske for Germany’s One Two Films in co-production with Finland’s Aamu Film Company and German broadcaster ZDF, with the support of the First Movie Program and the Les Arcs Coproduction Village, and with additional funding coming from nordmedia and the Finnish Film Foundation.

SALT LAKE is a tragicomedy about the meaning of fidelity. The film is produced by the Polish company Mañana in coproduction with Sweden’s Common Ground Pictures. The film has received funding from Creative Europe - MEDIA. Shooting is planned for the summer of 2020.

IN THE MIRROR now in production

IN THE MIRROR by Laila Pakalnina, producer: EAVE graduate and Lithuanian National Coordinator Dagne Vildziunaite is shooting. According to Laila Pakalnina the film will be created using special “selfie stylistics” and will transpose the traditional Snow White fairy tale to the youth-centric present day. “We have all grown up with the fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, where the ‘bad’ character, the Evil Stepmother, is so obsessed with herself that she even talks to her own reflection in the mirror on a regular basis. Nowadays, people observe their reflections in their smartphones and talk to themselves much more often than the Evil Stepmother did. With this film, we would like to depict what and how people see, when they are looking at themselves all the time.” The innovative project secured a contribution from the National Film Centre of Latvia and received additional backing from the Lithuanian Film Centre. After a winter filming earlier this year, the summer shoot started in July in Riga’s Andrejosta area and will continue in and around the Latvian capital. Principal photography is set to wrap in mid-August.

A MOONSTRUCK LIFE by Ann Sirot and Raphael Balboni, producer: EAVE participant Julie Esparbes. The bittersweet comedy on semantic dementia follows Alex and his mother Suzanne, an elegant and charismatic lady in her sixties. But, little by little, Suzanne starts to act strange, and in quite a spectacular fashion. She has developed a fatal neurodegenerative illness which affects her behaviour. She begins to steal cars, she cuts her neighbours’ hair while they sleep and she makes her own bank notes so as to buy herself some cigarettes. Her status is transformed from that of a Mother into that of an unmanageable child. And it’s Alex and his partner Noémie who will have to take on the role of parents.
Much like in their short works, the filmmakers are looking to experiment in terms of both writing and production. The film is supported by the Wallonia-Brussels Federation Film and Audiovisual Centre.

STOWAWAY by Joe Penna, producer: EAVE+ graduate Jonas Katzenstein is in production. The story of the science-fiction thriller revolves around a mission on Mars that is placed in jeopardy and could be doomed to failure, as the titular undiscovered unintentionally wreaks irreparable damage on the spaceship. STOWAWAY is being produced by German companies augenschein Filmproduktion and Rise Pictures, in co-production with the USA’s XYZ films, RainMaker Films and Yale Productions. The shoot is taking place in Germany in the Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia regions.

www.augenschein-filmproduktion.de

LA RUCHE by Christophe Hermans, producer: EAVE+ graduate Jean-Yves Roubin is shooting. An adaption of the novel by the French writer Arthur Loustalot, the film tells the story of Marion, Claire and Louise whose lives have always been ruled by the emotional highs and lows of their mother, Alice. Now, only their love can save her from the destructive spiral in which she is caught and dragged ever further into with every passing day. By way of this female quartet and these adolescent girls who must contend with the bipolar disorder of their mother, the filmmaker is looking to question our notions of filial and maternal love, but also our ideas of psychological pain, the medical treatment of this pain, and its limits.
LA RUCHE is produced by Frakas Production and co-produced by Avenue B in France and by Polar Bear in Flanders.

LES MEILLEURES by Marion Desseigne Ravel, producer: PUENTES graduate Delphine Schmit is in production. Written by Marion Desseigne Ravel herself, the plot is summarised as follows by the main character’s inner voice: "on a wall in my street, someone has graffitied the words: 'the first one to fall in love has lost'. Personally, I think it’s true. Because afterwards, everyone talks about you. Because afterwards, you’re at the mercy of it, you think about it all the time, and the world seems upside down. I’ve lost. I’m in love with a girl and I don’t know what to do… ." Produced by Agnès Vallée and Emmanuel Barraux on behalf of 31 Juin Films and by PUENTES graduate Delphine Schmit for Tripode Productions, LES MEILLEURES is co-produced and has been pre-purchased by France 2 Cinéma. It has also been pre-purchased by Ciné+ and is supported by the film foundation Fondation Gan pour le Cinéma, as well as the Sofica companies Cinécap and Cineventure. Desseigne Ravel’s feature film will be shot in Paris over the course of seven weeks, with Lucile Mercier in charge of photography.

THE WARDEN and STAND UP now in post-production

THE WARDEN by Threes Anna, producer: EAVE+ graduate Hanneke Niens is in post-production. The film’s story, penned by the director herself, revolves around a biologist and experienced birdwatcher who has lived all alone on an island near the coast for many years. He is working as an ornithologist when, all of a sudden, he gets the unexpected news that he has to retire and that his post will be made defunct. The birdwatcher decides not to give up and plans his protest. Threes Anna: „THE WARDEN is a solo-film about an old man alone on an island full of birds. Freek de Jonge, a 75-year-old Dutch comedian, was my actor, and his performance exceeded all expectations. Today, I felt like I was in a sweet shop surrounded by the most fantastic ingredients. Now the trick is to make the most beautiful meal possible out of it all.” The film is being produced by Hanneke Niens and Hans de Wolf for KeyFilm in co-operation with Dutch public broadcaster AVROTROS. Furthermore, the project recently received a grant from the Netherlands Film Fund.

www.keyfilm.nl

STAND UP by Juraj Bohus, producer: EAVE graduate Katarina Krnacova is in post-production. The film follows the lead character, forty-something Miso, who leaves his steady job behind only to fulfil his dream of being a professional stand-up comedian. However, he encounters many challenges that he was unprepared for while touring Slovakian cities. According to Katarina Krnacova, the film combines an “intimate story set in a local environment with the universal topic of searching for one’s identity”. The low-budget production is the first domestic movie to attempt a “green shoot”. “The idea of incorporating several green rules into my work in film was inspired by the activity and lectures organised by the Slovak Film Agency,” said Krnacova. The project was supported by the Slovak Audiovisual Fund, and secured backing from “private sources, including American partners, but also some from Slovakia and the Czech Republic.” The film is being co-produced by Ten Acre Films and Webster University (USA).
