    The Black Mill Presentation 25.09, 4:25pm - 4:55pm

    Presented during last year’s Forum, The Black Mill is currently in post-production. We will watch a 20 minute presentation of the project. The Black Mill is an adaptation of a novel by Marcin Szczygielski. Both the film and the book are a modern and frightening story for children, inspired by the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm and Stranger Things on the one hand and a universal story about power, friendship, family and accepting disabilities and poverty on the other. The Black Mill will premiere in November 2020.

    Philip worked for Disney Studios and Dream Works for many years. He is the man behind Mulan, Pocahontas (Disney), The Prince of Egypt and The Road to El Dorado (Dream Works).
