Joy Division: Emily Atef Begins Production on “Some Day We Will Tell Each Other Everything”

Fresh off the world premiere screening of More Than Ever (read review) in the Un Certain Regard section, Emily Atef is already back in the director’s chair set to go into production on a project she has been toiling with since 2018. The Screen Daily folks confirmed that next outing Some Day We Will Tell Each Other Everything will see newcomer Marlene Burow leads the set during the summer of 1990 drama also featuring Felix Kramer (who’ll be seen in the near future in Asli Özge’s Black Box).

Based on Daniela Krien’s debut novel, this is about a passionate romance between an 18 year-old woman and a 40 year-old man in the first summer following the fall of the Berlin Wall, deep in the East German countryside. The German-language production is produced by Rohfilm Factory’s Karsten Stöter. Seeing that the production has begun the filmmaker will have the choice between a Berlinale 2023 showing or back-to-back showings in Cannes.
