WARSAW: Adrian Panek is currently shooting his second feature film Werewolf, set in the aftermath of WWII. This Polish/Dutch/German coproduction is scheduled to be released in 2018.
The story written by Adrian Panek is set in 1945 and follows eight children freed from the Gross-Rosen concentration camp. A small orphanage, run by 20-year-old fellow camp survivor Hanka, is set up for them in the middle of the forest. The kids try to regain what is left from their childhood, when the nightmare comes back in the form of wild wolf dogs that were used to guard them in the camp.
The film is produced by Agata Szymańska and Magdalena Kamińska through Balapolis in coproduction with the Dutch company House of Netherhorror and Germany’s Twenty Twenty Vision Filmproduktion. The budget is 1.1 m EUR / 5 m PLN, of which 469,444 EUR / 2 m PLN is a production grant from the Polish Film Institute. The Netherlands Film Fund is also supporting. "This is a story about how evil can become contagious. It is a story about people who were treated like animals and who are struggling now to return to their human form", Adrian Panek told FNE.
