PRODUCTION: Hungarian Zero in Preproduction

2010-11-22

Prague-based Hungarian director Gyula Nemes is in preproduction with Zero, a mock-documentary stle "grotesque-anarchist drama" about the extinction of bees. The 1.8 million euro film is preparing for a mid-late 2011 shoot.

Producers are Belgium-based Gabor Dettre of Playtime (www.theplaytimefilm.com, Hungary) and Jiri Konecny of endorfilm (www.endorfilm.cz, Czech Republic). The film has 770,000 euros of the financing in place, primarily from Hungary. The producers pitched the film at Connecting Cottbus (www.connecting-cottbus.de). The production has applied for Dutch funding.

Nemes said the film will be shot in "broken English," for comedic effect. Plans are underway to film in a leading industrialized country.

Zero is planned as a provoking film on globalization and a caricature of the society of consumption. Nemes will mix pixilation with mock educational films, fake commercials, documentary footage and interviews.

Nemes currently teaches documentary filmmaking at Prague's FAMU film school. His made his feature debut with My One and Onlies (2006) which was presented at the Venice Critic's Week.
