The script, written by Ileana Muntean and Valentin Hotea, is in its final draft. The film is produced by Ada Solomon and the Romanian company HiFilm (www.hifilm.ro). The project received a Nipkow fellowship (www.nipkow.de) and was presented as the only non-Spanish project Foro de Coproduccion at San Sebastian (www.ibaia.org), and was at Connecting Cottbus (www.connecting-cottbus.de).
The budget is 700,000 euro. The project will apply for a grant from the Romanian National Centre for Cinema (www.cncinema.abt.ro). Shooting will take place in the summer of 2011.
"What I found appealing in this story was the honesty of a tale about friendship, betrayal and courage, and also the very sensitive way of touching a delicate social and historical issue using a contemporary example that is more convincing than an entire recent history book," Solomon told FNE.
