LJUBLJANA: In February, award-winning Slovenian filmmaker Damjan Kozole finished shooting his tenth feature film Nightlife, which has now entered postproduction.
The story is about an affluent upper-middle class couple. Lea is a college professor of solid principles, Milan a successful attorney. But their life, defined by an attractive apartment, a dignified air and a son who studies abroad, starts falling apart late one night when Milan is found semi-conscious in suspicious circumstances.
The film stars well-known Slovenian actors Pia Zemljič (Marko Naberšnik's Rooster’s Breakfast by Arsmedia), Jernej Šugman, Marko Mandić (Vinko Möderndorfer's Inferno and Landscape No. 2 by Forum Ljubljana), Jana Zupančič and Peter Musevski.
The film is a coproduction between Slovenia, Macedonia and Bosnia-Herzegovina produced by Danijel Hočevar through Vertigo, in coproduction with Sisters and Brother Mitevski in Macedonia and the Sarajevo Center for Contemporary Art in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The budget is estimated at 1,157,000 EUR. The project was supported by the Slovenian Film Center with 582,000 EUR, the Macedonian Film Agency with 113,700 EUR and Film Fund Sarajevo with 25,000 EUR, also with technical support from Viba film studio. Some additional foreign investors are expected, Danijel Hočevar told FNE.
The film is expected to be finished by the end of this year and will be distributed by Slovenian distributer Cinemania Group.
