) and Kylian Larmonie.

Written by the director, the script begins one morning, when the inhabitants of a housing project tower realise that a black veil is obstructing all the windows and the front door of the building. A black veil which devours anything that attempts to go through it…

Produced by Sylvie Pialat and Benoît Quainon for Les Films du Worso (who are producing their 8th consecutive feature film with Guillaume Nicloux), and by Bruno Nahon with Thomas Morvan and Caroline Nataf for Unité, La Tour d’Assitan was pre-bought by Canal+ and Ciné+. Supported by the genre film fund of the CNC (with a backing of €500,000 – read the news), the feature will be filming (for a total of five weeks) until 14 May in Aubervilliers, with Christophe Offenstein (winner of the 2016 César award in his specialty for Valley of Love) as director of photography. The French release will be handled by Wild Bunch Distribution and international sales by Elle Driver.
