Written by the director himself, the story revolves around two ghosts - a mother and her son - who are looking for the latter’s missing father. It’s a physical and spiritual journey through a war-ravaged world. After great sacrifices, they will repair the fragile bonds between them, and they might just find redemption too…
Horizon is produced by Paola Andrea Perez Nieto on behalf of Colombia’s Inercia Films, and by Thierry Lenouvel for French firm Ciné-Sud Promotion, in co-production with Luxembourg’s Tarantula, Chile’s Quijote Films and Germany’s UnaFilm, with the support of FDC - Proimagenes, Ibermedia, the Aide aux Cinémas du Monde Fund (steered by the CNC and the Institut français), the Hubert Bals Fund, Film Fund Luxembourg and NRW. International sales are still under negotiation, while the film’s premiere is planned for 2024.
For the record, Ciné-Sud Promotion are currently overseeing post-production on Le Pensionnat (Yurt) by Turkey’s Nehir Tuna, which is a first film revolving around a 14-year-old teen who is forced to leave the comfort of his middle class life at his father’s request and sent to a religious boarding school for boys, where he finds himself juggling family expectations, religious obligations and the childhood he’s desperately clinging onto… Production is entrusted to Turkey’s TN Yapım, Germany’s Red Balloon Film and Ciné-Sud Promotion.
Ciné-Sud Promotion is also an associate producer producteur associé on another Turkish title in post-production: Suddenly by Melisa Önel, which is steered by Aniden Film (Turkey), Zischlemann Films (Germany) and Digital Kraft (Serbia), notably with the support of Eurimages.
Worth a final mention among the projects in development with the French production company is The Blue Flamingo by Brazil’s Beatriz Seigner (well-received in the 2018 Directors’ Fortnight via Los silencios [+leggi anche:
