Le voyage de Fanny

Director: Lola Doillon
Writer: Lola Doillon

Director Lola Doillon comes from French cinematic royalty, the daughter of director Jacques Doillon and editor Noelle Boisson is half-sister to model/actress Lou Doillon and married to director Cedric Klapisch. She’s about to unveil her third feature le voyage de Fanny (The Voyage of Fanny) in 2016, which concerns the exodus of a group of Jewish children from France to Switzerland as they attempt to evade the Nazis. Excitingly, Doillon has cast Belgian actress Cecile De France in the adult lead role.

Cast: Cecile De France, Marina Vlady, Jeanne Abraham

Production Co./Producers: Bee Films, Origami Films, Scope Pictures

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. TBD (domestic) Diaphana Films (international).

Release Date: Doillon nabbed Kristin Scott Thomas for her 2010 sophomore film In Your Hands, which went to the BFI London Film Festival to premiere. Her pedigree paired with De France should enhance the availability of this WWII drama, which could snag a slot at TIFF.
