EAVE project ROJO now in post-production

In Post-Production January 2018

  • EAVE project ROJO by Benjamin Naishtat, producer: EAVE graduate Barbara Sarasola-Day, co-producers: EAVE graduates Ingmar Trost, Marleen Slot finished shooting. The plot: Argentina during the mid 1970s: a wave of unprecedented political violence begins to unfold. But this would seem, at least on the surface, to have little effect on the arid, dull, small town where Dario, a fifty-year-old well-known lawyer, is leading a placid life with his family. The ordinary course of things is interrupted by fate when one night Dario gets into an argument with a bald man. Dario resumes his daily routine. Until one day, a private detective in search of the bald man appears in the small town. The film is supported by Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, World Cinema Fund, INCAA, IBERMEDIA, CNC, NL Film Fund + Hubert Bals Fund.


  • I AM FRANK by Metod Pevec, producer: EAVE graduate Danijel Hocevar is in post-production. Pevec’s sixth feature film tells a story of two brothers, who are as dissimilar as if each of them came from their own corner of the divided Slovenian society. Frank is a barstool apostle, subscribing to atavistic remainders of communist ideas and socialist values. Brane, on the other hand, is focused on personal success and adapted very successfully to the liberal capitalist circumstances. Once upon a time they played in the same band and loved the same woman. Had it not been for their father and an unusual heritage, they might have remained brothers. I AM FRANK by is produced by Danijel Hočevar through Vertigo in co-production with RTV Slovenija, Serbia’s Backroom Production and Macedonia’s Trice Films and Small Moves Films. The Slovenian Film Center, Film Centre Serbia and Eurimages support the film.

The story, based on the novel Closeness by Romanian author Marin Malaicu-Hondrari, follows Adrian, a Romanian poet who arrives in Spain. Without any papers, he starts working as a night watchman. His life changes forever when he meets Maria, a guitar player in a jazz band. Shooting in the Spanish cities of Córdoba, Seville and Candás finished in November 2017.
