Marian Crişan (Palme d'Or for the short Megatron in 2008) will shoot his first feature this autumn.
Crişan himself wrote the script for Morgen, the story of a man living by the Romanian-Hungarian border who likes to fish but whose catch one day is a Kurdish immigrant.
The filmmaker said he was inspired by an article he once read in a local newspaper.
The film is a Romanian-French coproduction between Anca Puiu and Mandragora (http://www.mandragora.ro/) together with Marianne Slot and Slot Machine (http://www.slotmachine.fr/). Most probably, the film will also involve also a Hungarian co-producer.
The project received €286,500 from the National Cinema Centre (http://www.cncinema.abt.ro) this year.
Crişan is now casting actors. The shooting will take place in autumn 2009 on location, in Crişan's hometown of Salonta. The premiere is planned for 2010.
