BUCHAREST: Acclaimed Romanian writer/director Corneliu Porumboiu is currently shooting Gomera in Romania and Spain. This Romanian/French/German coproduction stars Vlad Ivanov and has already been acquired by MK2 Films.

Following his artistic quest from Police, Adjective / Politist, adjectiv (42 KM FILM), Porumboiu wrote a story about a policeman called Cristi, who reaches La Gomera island in Spain in order to learn El Silbo, a whistled language used by the inhabitants over a distance of up to five kilometres. Cristi aims at freeing Zsolt, a controversial businessman arrested in Bucharest.

Porumboiu said in a statement that he is interested in a “possible use of the old language El Silbo in a world where communication is more and more controlled and there is a direct conflict between verbal and non-verbal”.

The cast includes Catrinel Menghia (Marlon), Rodica Lazăr and Sabin Tambrea.

Gomera is a coproduction between 42 KM FILM (Romania), Les Films du Worso (France), Komplizen Film (Germany) and Arte Grand Accord. Marcela Ursu is producing and Patricia Poienaru is the executive producer. The coproducers are: Sylvie Pialat, Benoît Quainon, Janine Jackowski, Jonas Dornbach and Maren Ade. The Romanian Film Centre is supporting together with Eurimages.

This is the first film that Porumboiu shoots outside Romania. Shooting started on 18 February and will wrap at the end of April 2018. The premiere is set for 2019.

Porumboiu’s latest work, the documentary Infinite Football / Fotbal infinit (42 KM FILM), had its world premiere in the 2018 Berlinale’s Forum section and will be domestically released by Voodoo Films on 9 March 2018.
