Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Four features immersed in pre-sales, four more getting virtual market screenings and five completed films: the Memento Films International team, managed by Emilie Georges and guided by head of sales Mathieu Delaunay (aided by Alexandre Moreau), will certainly have a very varied range of ammunition at the Cannes Film Festival’s Marché du Film Online (22-26 June).

, in the Directors’ Fortnight in 2009 and 2011, respectively, the filmmaker has himself written the screenplay for his new opus, which follows Petar during three distinct periods of his humble life in rural eastern Bulgaria. Sun, work, land, sheep and birds. But there is nothing ordinary about this unconventional man, who treads his own poetic path and accepts his destiny with no regrets. It is being produced by Waterfront Film together with Paris-based outfit Koro Films, and it has secured support from Eurimages and the National Film Centre of Bulgaria, among other sources. Its French release will be handled by UFO Distribution.

Also shining bright on Memento’s line-up are three films that were first announced at the EFM: A Hero by Iran’s Asghar Farhadi (which is being shot this summer), the spy thriller featuring a female protagonist Huda’s Salon by Dutch-Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad (currently in production) and The Drover’s Wife: The Legend of Molly Johnson by Australia’s Leah Purcell (a revenge movie in post-production that will be pre-sold based on a promo-reel).
