Daughter of Rage

Nicaragua’s Laura Baumeister should have her highly anticipated feature debut Daughter of Rage ready for 2020. A co-production between Nicaragua-Netherlands-Mexico-Germany, Baumeister took home three of the four prizes at San Sebastian’s Co-production Forum in 2019. The project is produced by Rossana Baumeister, Christine Anderton, Bettina Brokemper and Samuel Chauvin. Daughter of Rage is the first narrative feature to be directed by a Nicaraguan woman. Her 2019 short, “Water Navel” was selected for the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

Gist: A mother-daughter story that takes place in a garbage dump in Managua, the young Maria is consumed by rage after being abandoned by her mother and joins a gang of other abandoned children.

Release Date/Prediction: With production scheduled for late 2019 and an anticipated mid-year completion in 2020, we think Baumeister could premiere in Venice 2020.
