  • LA COULEUR DU RING by Valéry Gaillard, producer: EAVE graduate Marion Guth  is in development. The documentary tells a story of blows. A story about bodies. A story of skin colour. America is criss-crossed by a deep, immense, yet almost invisible frontier: the one that separates white from black. This unnamed dividing line determines property prices, unemployment rates and the attitude of police forces; it divides states, parcels out cities and divides neighbourhoods. And it is embodied, perhaps more than anywhere else, in a 5 x 5 metre square of light, circumscribed and highly symbolic.... The boxing ring.

EAVE project DIRTY LAND is shooting

In production

  • CALL ME CALENDAR by Juris Poskus, producer: EAVE graduate Ieva Norviliene is in production. The film tells the story of Oskar, a 30-year-old, who falls hopelessly in love with the girl of his dreams and takes first steps towards independence from his old mother. To prove his worth, Oskar recruits a motley crew of companions who, despite their age, have never lost their sense of childhood. Together, they create a heartbreaking, tragicomic chain of events to prove that escape from loneliness is possible if you act from the heart. The film is produced by Madara Melberga through FA Filma (Latvia) in co-production with Ieva Norviliene through the Lithuanian production company Tremora. The project has received support from the National Film Centre of Latvia and the Lithuanian Film Centre. Additional financing is committed from the Latvian streaming platform TET and the Latvian National Television.

  • EAVE project DIRTY LAND, written, directed and produced by EAVE graduate Luis Campos is shooting in Portugal. It is a co-production between Portugal (Matiné, BRO Cinema, Um Segundo Filmes, Agente A Norte) and Italy (dispàrte) with support from the Portuguese Film Institute and Italy Ministry of Culture. The story: Struggling with the effects of climate change, a boy helps his alcoholic father fishing and selling lamprey while his teenage female neighbours start exploring their sexuality. Faced with the decline of the activity, his father's erratic behaviour and the growing scarcity of means, sustainability depends on changes they resist making.
