… was one of the around 30 projects pitched at the CPH:FORUM that took place wednesday and thursday this week. Director Danish/Swedish Maria Bäck, producer Anna-Maria Kantarius. Who did a strong presentation of a project that in CPH:DOX terminology is FICTIONnonFiction – hybrid is another word for a film like this, where the director will have to find creative solutions to build a narrative for the five days the director experienced alone as 14 years old in the Swedish capital after her mother was brought to hospital to be treated for her mental illness. The film to be – no objections – got the the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award of €15.000.
Maria Bäck graduated from the Danish Film School, documentary line in 2013.
Chapeau for a jury that chose to go for a talent and not one of the established directors, who pitched or whose projects were pitched by producers.
General comments on the Forum will follow.
