SKOPJE: Martin Ivanov and Ivica Dimitrijevic are in the final stages of postproduction with Digging / Kopanje, a low-budget independent feature film based on the text by German playwright Christian Winkler. The film produced by MI Film will have its Macedonian release in Cinema Frosina in Skopje on 28 February 2018.
The film tells the story of two friends meeting in the countryside after 16 years, accompanied by a third person, to dig a well. They start to talk, but at the same time they remain silent about their common past, their connection and their separation. Digging is about the past and the present, about friendship and the unique laws of one friendship in particular, impenetrable to those who stand outside it.
The film was shot in June 2017 in 6 days with a total budget of 1,800 EUR. Some 90 percent of the film happens at night. It is the first film produced by MI Film. Martin Ivanov and Ivica Dimitrijevic are also producing.
Dimo Popov and Genc Halimi are the DoPs. The cast includes Gorast Cvetkovski, Ivica Dimitrijevic and Aleksandar Gjorgjieski.
Sales agents and distributors are welcome.
