BUCHAREST: Anca Damian is in preproduction with a new long animated film, The Extraordinary Voyage of Marona / Extraordinara calatorie a Maronei, which is a coproduction between Romania, France and Belgium.

The film is a contemporary fairy tale telling the story of a female dog trained to give all to her masters, even at the price of her life. Anca Damian wrote the script together with her son, the actor Anghel Damian.

Anca Damian is producing through Aparte Film in coproduction with Ron Dyens through France’s Sacrebleu and Tomas Leyers through Belgium’s Mind Meets. The Romanian Film Centre, the Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF), the Regional Fund PACA, the Regional Fund Nouvelle Aquitaine and the Regional Fund Strasbourg support the project.

The budget is 2,546,140 EUR, of which 1,533,856 EUR is already in place, Anca Damian told FNE.

The film will be finished in 2018, but the premiere is not yet set.

Trained as a DoP, Anca Damian started her directing career with feature films, but gained international fame with her first long animated documentary Crulic – The Path to Beyond / Crulic – Drumul spre dincolo (2011), a Romanian/Polish coproduction based on the tragic story of Claudiu Crulic, a 33-year-old Romanian who starved himself to death in a Polish prison in January 2008. The film was the beginning of a trilogy about heroism followed by The Magic Mountain (2015), about the life of Adam Jacek Winkler (1937-2002), a 20th century Polish Don Quixote.
