PRODUCTION: Borcuch in Development with Lasting Moments


    WARSAW: Jacek Borcuch, director of All That I Love, is developing Lasting Moments, a drama that once again deals with the problems of youth.

    The project has already received a positive expert grade and financing from the Polish Film Institute (www.pisf.pl). The film follows Karina and Michał, a student couple who are madly in love and raising their newborn son. Their new family is disrupted by an accidental murder that Michał commits during a fight. Nobody knows about the young man's crime, but his guilty conscious is tearing the couple apart.

    The film is the first production project of Manana (www.manana.pl), a Polish distribution company based in Warsaw specializing in Ibero-American, Asian and African titles. The Polish producer is currently negotiation with a Spanish company as co-producer for this project.

    The film received 3.6 million in financing from the Polish Film Institute for development and production. The film also received 350,000 PLN from the Krakow Film Commission (www.film-commision.pl) which told FNE that two-thirds of the filming will take place in Krakow. The full cast and crew list is yet to be announced. The film will move into production in the first half of 2012.
