Hey folks, I've been busy shaping the West Africa documentary "Listen" (tackling the subject of discrimination and stigma related to HIV/AIDS) into 38 minutes of pure emotion! We're moving into sound mix and grading soon, check this space for screening dates.
My producer Caroline Piras (of Films Fauves) and yours truly are busy repping "Urwald", aka "Protect us from our Hunger" at the annual Montréal co-production market Frontières.
Here's us pitching! Ready to give the audience a taste of Luxembourgish horror.
Larry Fessenden of "House of the Devil" fame also gave our flyer art the thumbs-up. Graphic artist Jeff Poitiers made those beauties.
I'm proud to announce that my next feature "Urwald", aka. "Protect Us From Our Hunger" has been selected to participate in the Frontières co-production market at Fantasia festival, Montréal. The industry event is held on 20-24th July.
None less than personal idol George A. Romero ("Night of the Living Dead") will also present an upcoming film during Frontières 2017!
The film is produced by Gilles Chanial with Caroline Piras ("Aux Yeux des Vivants") for Les Films Fauves (Sundance '16 for "Mammal"). Shooting is still in the stars, but will hopefully start in 2018.
I'm preparing a documentary about FEVE - a program destined to give universal care to vulnerable populations in several West African countries, mostly Senegal and Guineau-Bissau.
The film will be screened on World AIDS Day, Dec. 1.
The Ministère des Affaires Etrangères (Foreign Affairs) was kind enough to fund a large part of the projet's budget. Luxembourgish NGO Stop Aids Now launched the idea for this documentary.
Here are a few impressions!
After its TV premiere on November 6th on RTL, my controversial new documentary "Meng Heemecht" ("My country") about gay, conservative politician Joe Thein (ADR) can be viewed online via this link:
Unfortunately, the video is sub-titled in French only.
I am currently working on the second season of documentary series "routwäissgro".
The monthly screenings will resume in September. Keep watching this space!
