BAD BLOOD by Milutin Petrovic, producer: EAVE graduate Snezana van Houwelingen is in pre-production. Planned is a feature film and TV series based on the 1910 novel of famous classic Serbian writer Bora Stankovic. Both projects are produced by Serbia’s This and That Productions, which is currently looking for international coproducers. The script is to a great extent based on a long lost script written by the renowned Serbian film director and editor Vojislav Nanovic (1922-1983). There were ocassional rumours and legends about the script. Director Milutin Petrovi? found it by chance in an apartment in Belgrade.
Nanovic’s script has been polished by Milena Markovic and this new version is to be used for the feature and the first three of ten planned episodes of the TV series under the same title. The story is set in the turbulent years of the Ottoman Empire and at the cusp of a new century, when peasants began rising up in strength to the detriment of wealthy merchants families. The story follows Trifun, the wealthy leader of the Christian minority under the Ottoman rule, who, while trying to preserve his wealth and power, sets off a chain of events that cause terrible consequences for his family.
The project is being developed and prepared by This and That Productions with development support of MEDIA Creative Europe and development and production support from Film Center Serbia. Radio Television Serbia – RTS is also on board. Shooting is scheduled to start in the summer of 2020.

MADELEINE COLLINS now in production

MADELEINE COLLINS by Antoine Barraud, co-producer: EAVE graduate Jean-Yves Roubin is in production. Written by Antoine Barraud and Héléna Klotz, the story centres around Judith who is leading a double life divided between Switzerland and France. On the one hand, there’s Abdel, with whom she’s raising a little girl, and on the other, there’s Melvil, with whom she has two older boys. Slowly and dangerously, this fragile equilibrium, composed of lies, secrets and endless comings and goings, begins to tip. Trapped in her own web, Judith chooses to carry on regardless, forging blindly onwards up a slippery, vertiginous slope.
Produced by Justin Taurand on behalf of the Parisian firm Les Films du Bélier, MADELEINE COLLINS is co-produced by Swiss group Close Up Films and Belgium’s Frakas Productions. Pre-purchased by Canal+, Ciné+ and RTS, the feature film is also supported by Eurimages, the Hauts-de-France region (Pictanovo) and Cinéforom, to name a few. Shooting will commence on 26 September in the Hauts-de-France and Ile-de-France regions.

THE RED ORCHESTRA by Carl-Ludwig Rettinger, producer: EAVE graduate Isabelle Truc is in production. "The Red Orchestra" was the most important resistance group inside the Third Reich, a vast spy network mainly located in Brussels and Paris during the Second World War. Those activists helped the Jews persecuted by the regime, hid deserters and gathered military information that was decisive for the victory of the allies. Director Carl-Ludwig Rettinger compares the images and the narrative of a film made in the German Federal Republic (GFR) and a series made in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) in the early 1970s, each of the two films only telling half the truth in his film. He also by met the descendants of these courageous men, filmed the important places of this history and invited some specialists of that time, with the proposition to shed light on this network of mythical spies. Produced by Lichtblick Films (Germany), Iota Production (Belgium), Vice versa Films (Israel) and supported by FFA, Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg, NRW, DFFF, RBB/ARTE, RTBF, Casa Kafka.
