Last year on autumn we started working on Marta Minorowicz's feature debut "The Child of the Steppe".
This is story of 13-year old Suhbat who begins his journey into adulthood through forging an extraordinary relationship with nature. Forced to help pay off his father’s gambling debts, Suhbat must confront the many challenges and conflicts that come his way as he prepares to race his semi-wild horse in a 35km race across the wild steppe.
On this project we are working with experienced German production company: zero one film (www.zeroone.de). On the very beginning of development project was selected to Nipkow Programme (www.nipkow.de). This scholarship provides to work on screenplay with great international experts. In cooperation with our German producer we received support support from Polish-German Co-development Fund - it was only one supported project in last session. In addition Ann Caroline Renninger, producer from zero one film, will participate in prestige EAVE workshop (www.eave.org), which this year will take place in Luxembourg, Turku and Vienne. Working on development of this project will be finished during this year. Keep your fingers cross! :)
