GDYNIA: Lech Majewski’s adult fantasy Valley of the Gods will screen in the main competition of the 44th Gdynia Film Festival, running from 16 to 21 September 2019. The film is a coproduction between the USA, Poland and Luxembourg. The all-star cast includes John Malkovich, Josh Hartnett, Keir Dullea, Jaime Ray Newman and Berenice Marlohe.
Valley of the Gods weaves together three narrative threads, mixing with the world of myths inspired by the Indian tribe legends about the ancient hero Ullikummin.
"I am fascinated by the beauty and poetry of this mythology. It illustrates the contrast of primitive America with the current, equally surreal culture of America's myth. With the culture of mass media and dreamed-up film illusions. It is summarised, among others, by the phrase ’sky is the limit’, demonstrating that everyone can become enormously rich”, director Lech Majewski said in a statement.
The film was produced by Jan Rymsza through Royal Road Entertainment (USA) together with Lech Majewski through Poland’s Angelus Silesius, in coproduction with Carla Rosen-Vacher through the Luxembourg branch of the Royal Road Entertainment.
The budget was 3.7 m EUR / 16.5 m PLN and the film received support from the Polish Film Institute, Silesia Film and Odra Film.
The shooting took place in 2016.
