Fire Island: Christian Petzold Begins Production on “The Red Sky” with Muse Paula Beer
A filmmaker with multiple irons in the fire has decided to go where the glow is. Thanks to our friends over at The Film Stage we learn that German master filmmaker Christian Petzold has begun production on The Red Sky — a gay-themed romance and the second instalment in a fairy tale trilogy that began with 2020’s Undine (read review).
Returning to the fold we find muse Paula Beer (Transit, Undine) who’ll be supported by actors Enno Trebs, Thomas Schubert, Jonas Dassler and Langston Uibel. The summer project is set up near the Baltic Sea not far from the peninsula of Ahrenshoop located at the northern tip of Germany. In a nutshell, passions flare up between several individuals in a backdrop that would provide cinematographer Hans Fromm (not yet confirmed) with quite the challenge. Look for more production news shortly.
