SAGRES in production now

In Production November 2020

  • DALL’INTERNO by Leonardo Di Constanzo, producer: EAVE+ graduate Carlo Cresto-Dina is in production. The synopsis: in a prison in the process of decommission, a handful of officers and the last remaining inmates await transfer to a different jail. Over time, the written and unwritten rules in place seem to lose all meaning, and this community of men in limbo takes on a new and fragile form. DALL’INTERNO is produced by Tempesta, together with Rai Cinema, in co-production with Amka Film Productions (Switerland) and RSI Radiotelevisione Svizzera / SRG SSR. The film enjoys the support of MiBact’s Film Department, the Swiss Federal Bureau for Culture (UFC), Eurimages and the Sardegna Film Commission.


  • THE CELLAR by Brendan Muldawney, producer: EAVE graduate Conor Barry, co-producer: EAVE graduate Benoit Roland, executive producer: EAVE graduate Lesley McKimm is shooting. The film tells the story of Keira Woods, whose daughter mysteriously vanishes in the cellar of their new house in the country. Keira soon discovers there is an ancient and powerful entity controlling their home that she will have to face or risk losing her family’s souls forever. THE CELLAR is being produced by Conor Barry for Savage Productions (Ireland) and Richard Bolger for Hail Mary Pictures (Ireland), and co-produced by Benoit Roland from Wrong Men (Belgium). Patrick Ewald, of Epic Pictures, Lesley McKimm, of Screen Ireland, and Patrick O’Neill, of Wildcard Distribution, will serve as the executive producers. The project was also backed by Screen Ireland, Epic Pictures, BCP Asset Management, the WRAP Fund, Wallimage, Wildcard Distribution, BNP Paribas Fortis Film Finance, VOO & BETV. Principal photography is set to commence in Roscommon this month.


  • SAGRES by Lovisa Siren, co-producers: EAVE graduate and Swedish National Coordinator Julia Gebauer, EAVE graduate and Finnish National Coordinator Elli Toivoniemi is shooting. The film follows two sisters and a teenage daughter who travel from Stockholm, Sweden, to the picturesque cliffs of Sagres, Portugal — located in the southwestern most part of Europe, known as “The End of the World.” Maya, the younger sister, is a free-spirited, half-failing musician who has left her son in Portugal with her mother, while older sibling Nilo is a control freak in a sexless marriage. When the sisters’ mother phones up to say she’s sick, the pair — joined by Nilo’s rambunctious teenage daughter Laura — embarks on a road trip through Europe to reunite in Sagres, culminating in a tragicomic reunion no one expected. Siren’s feature debut featured in this year’s Berlinale Talents program, is produced by Siri Hjorton Wagner ([sic] film) and co-produced with Julia Gebauer (Way Creative), Elli Toivoniemi (Tuffi Films) and Beata Saboova (Umedia). Lisabi Fridell (“And Then We Danced”) serves as DOP on the project.
