Catch Twenty-2?: Jasmila Zbanic Embarks on “Quo Vadis, Aida: The Missing Piece”

Tucked away in German coin trade news (via the Screen Daily folks) we find a bunch of big filmmaker names receiving funds for their upcoming projects and one film that sticks out among the films in development list (was completely off the radar) is the next project by Jasmila Žbanić. She is returning to the world of her outstanding 2020 drama with Quo Vadis, Aida: The Missing Piece. What is this about? Is this a post-aftermath narrative? We’ll be sleuthing around to find more details on this project shortly. A selection for the Golden Lion competition in 2020, Quo Vadis, Aida? ended up landing a trio of 2021 European Film Awards for Best Film, Best Director and Best Actress for the masterful Jasna Djuricic. The Razor Film Produktion folks will be producing the new film.

The other thirteen filmmakers/projects receiving Medenboard Berlin-Brandenburg (MBB) coin include Wes Anderson’s next untitled project, Agnieszka Holland’s Franz, Emily Atef’s Mercy, Pablo Larrain’s Maria, Karim Ainouz’s Motel Destino, Helene Hufnagel’s Agnes & Amir and Fatih Akin’s Amrum.
