New York: A Paris-based video production service along with a Kolkata-based arts and entertainment company will co-produce an Indian-American director’s film, a media report said on Monday.
Marc Irmer’s Paris-based Dolce Vita Films will co-produce with Kolkata-based Oddjoint Art, Bornila Chatterjee’s “Nuclear Hearts”, Screendaily.com reported.
The exclusive story on the news website said this English and Bengali-language project was selected for the co-production market at Film Bazaar 2014.
Film Bazaar is a platform created and organised to encourage collaboration between South Asian and international and film communities.
The co-production market provides a platform for South Asian projects to find financial and artistic support from the Indian and international film community attending Film Bazaar.
Chatterjee’s film revolves around three characters — a rich party girl of mixed descent, a European gigolo and a teenage Indian boy exploring his sexuality through music and girls’ dresses.
The producers are planning to cast a French actor for party girl’s role, an American actor for the gigolo’s role, and an Indian for the lead role.
“I liked the project’s boldness and energy and the fact that’s it’s something completely different for India,” Irmer said.
Meanwhile, the Film Bazaar 2015 is underway in Goa.
