Environ-Metal: Finnegan Oldfield & Daphné Patakia Swim to Lucie Prost’s Debut “Les truites”

After receiving some CNC Coin back in March of ’22, French filmmaker Lucie Prost is to begin production on what sounds like if you were to mix echo-drama Haynes’ Dark Water merged with Nichols’ Take Shelter. She has been able to lasso Finnegan Oldfield (Final Cut), Daphné Patakia (Benedetta) and Florent Loiret Caille for Les truites – the French word for trout. Production is set for June and July with cinematographer Noé Bach whose recent films include A-list film festival preemed Charline Bourgeois-Tacquet’s Anaïs in Love (2021), Guillaume Gouix’s Amore mio (2022) and Sofia Alaoui’s Animalia (2023) is onboard here. Lucie Fichot and Nelson Ghrénassia will produce.

But strange phenomena lead him to think that the construction site is polluting the river of his childhood. He then embarks on a hallucinated investigation that will confront him with his grief…
