  • TENGO SUENOS ELECTRICOS by Valentina Maurel, producer: EAVE graduate Benoit Roland is in post-production. The young, Belgian-based director of Costa Rican origin shot the film last November and December in San José, Costa Rica. The story follows in the footsteps of a young teenager. Eva can't stand the fact that her mother wants to renovate the house and get rid of the cat, which, disorientated since the divorce, pees everywhere. Eva wants to go and live with her father, who, disorientated like the cat, is going through a second adolescence. Eva follows him while he tries to reconnect with his desire to become an artist and find love again. But like someone who crosses an ocean of adults without knowing how to swim, Eva will also discover the rage that gnaws at him, and which she unknowingly inherited from him. The film is produced by Wrong Men (Belgium), and co-produced by Tres Tigres Films (Costa Rica) and Geko Films (France).

  • LABOUR DAY by Mladen Dordevic, producer: EAVE graduate and Serbian National Coordinator Milan Stojanovic, co-producers: EAVE graduate, group leader and Croatian National Coordinator Ankica Juric Tilic, EAVE graduates Maria Drandaki and Anamaria Antoci is in post-production. The story follows a group of former workers from a recently closed factory, who resort to the supernatural in their fight for personal dignity. “Labour Day is a film about the potential for rebellion that people carry within themselves. It is also about the almost unlimited power and strength, which are also present in all of us, mostly hidden. With this film, I want to express my personal view on the very painful topic of the transition from a socialist to a capitalist society, but from, it seems to me, a fresh angle, combining engaged socio-political realism with elements of a psychological thriller", Mladen Dordevic said in a statement. He also penned the script. The film is produced by Milan Stojanovic through Serbia’s Sense Production and Mladen Dordevic through Serbia’s Banda Film, in co-production with Bulgaria’s Agitprop, Ankica Juric Tilic through Croatia’s Kinorama, Maria Drandaki through Greece’s Homemade Films, Montenegro’s Adriatic Western, and Anamaria Antoci through Romania’s Tangaj Production. The production has been supported by Film Center Serbia, the Bulgarian National Film Center, the Croatian Audivisual Center, the Greek Film Center, the Film Centre of Montenegro and Eurimages. The project is also co-financed by the Greek Television ERT.
