Valeska Grisebach Hits the Trail for “The Dreamt Adventurer”

We are big on film funding news as sometimes it gives us a first glimpse on new projects from some of our favorite auteurs and so we recently found out that German-French Funding Commission are backing one prominent project worth the mention here. A critical darling in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard section with Western (read review) circa 2017, will be moving over the tri-border countries of Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey for her fourth feature film. Valeska Grisebach returns with the provisional working title The Dreamt Adventurer (Der Geträumte Abenteuer). If shooting begins this year we could earmark this for 2023 or 2024.

This is a drama about a woman who agrees to a deal to help an old acquaintance. She follows the hero on his adventure and enters dangerous territory where she is then confronted with her own desire. Germany’s Komplizen Films and France’s Kazak Productions (Corsage – read review) will produce the project along with Sofia-based Chouchov Brothers – they co-produced Western.

The three other projects to receive coin include Suzannah Mirghani’s Cotton Queen, Mareike Engelhardt’s Rabia and Catherine Maximoff’s animation feature Juliet And The Salamander.
