FNE at Berlinale 2011: New Loznitza film In the Fog to shoot in Latvia


    BERLIN: German Ukrainina director Sergei Lotznitza has inked a deal with Lativan Rijafilms (www.rijafilms.lv) to shoot his new production In the Fog in Latvia in September.

    The film will be produced by Ukrainian based Sotocinema Group (www.sota.net.de) and coproduced by the German Ma.Ja.De films with Polish and Lithuanian and possibly Netherlands coproducers expected to board the project.
    In the Fog is based on the Russian novel of the same name and is a story of two World War partisans which according to Sota Cinema's Olena Yershova edpicts the stupidity and brutality of war.
