"The main shoot started on April 21, but we started production in March," Krzysztof Łukaszewicz, the author of the script and the second director, told FNE. "The shoot will probably end on May 21 and post-production will take about two months."
The movie's important subject has provided it with substantial public funding from the Polish Film Institute (www.pisf.pl). "Our institute has appropriated 2 million zloty (€586,000) for the production and development of this title," PISF spokesperson Hanna Kisielińska told FNE.
The producer of General "Nil" is Wytwórnia Filmów Fabularnych i Dokumentalnych (www.wfdif.com.pl). The leading role will be played by the renowned Polish actor Olgierd Łukaszewicz.
