PUENTES project USPANTAN to start shooting
In Production April 2018
- LA FRONTIÈRE by Frédéric Fonteyne, producer: EAVE graduate Jaques-Henri Bronckart is in production. The film tells the story of three women during a scorching hot summer in the north of France and Belgium. Axelle, Conso and Dominic have nothing in common except that they are colleagues and that together, every day, they cross a border. On one side of the border, in Roubaix, they live dignified lives, while on the other side, in Belgium, they prostitute themselves. It's their little secret, their double life. At the end of summer, when a storm finally descends, these three women will enter into solidarity, as one might join the resistance. They will share a new secret that will bind them together forever. The film, which will be shot from 18 April to 25 May between Brussels and Metz, is produced by Versus Production and co-produced by Les Films du Poisson in France and Prime Time in Flanders, with support from the CCA, VAF, MEDIA, and the Grand Est region.
