ŁÓDŹ: Documentary The Director’s Chair, Mostafa Derkaoui / Fauteuil de cinéaste, Mostafa Derkaoui directed by Sophie Delvallée wrapped shooting in Poland. The film is a French/Moroccan/Polish coproduction with Poland’s Entertain Pictures coproducing.

The Moroccan filmmaker Mostafa Derkaoui is starting to work again after being on sick leave for the past ten years. Today, he is wheelchair-bound, aging, isolated, penniless and as recognised as he is forgotten. Yet Mostafa is determined to make his passion project, which he knows will be his last.

As he fights for his film, a small group of cinephiles are starting to restore his legendary films. Their search for scattered originals will allow Mostafa to revisit his work. It will take him all the way back to his student films, which he will have to look for in Poland, at the famous film school in Łódź.

According to a press release, France’s Kaléo Films is producing while Abel Aflam and SOREAD-2M from Morocco is coproducing. The project is supported by France’s Centre national du cinéma et de l'image animée and the Polish Film Institute. Shooting took place mainly in Łódź.

The film is scheduled to be ready by the end of 2017.
