Production is set to begin next month. Casting is currently in the works on the drama for what will be a two-month shoot produced by the Les Productions Balthazar folks. Rosales who has been to Cannes on several occasions including what we consider his masterwork in Petra (2018 Directors’ Fortnight selection) was last at the San Sebastián International Film Festival with 2022 preemed Girasoles silvestres (aka Wild Flowers) which hasn’t travelled well. Morlaix could ideally be ready for a bid at the Cannes Film Festival. Here’s the synopsis:

One day when she and her group of friends go to the cinema, they discover a film where the plot could be a mirror of what the young girl is experiencing.
