Germany’s Zum Goldenen Lamm Filmproduktion, the producer of Marc Rensing’s The Woman Who Dares which has its world premiere at Zurich, is currently shooting the feature debuts from Marc Brumund and Christina Schiewe.
Brummund is tackling the subject of abuse at Church-run institutions in Freistatt, shooting at the real-life reformatory of the same name in Lower Saxony, which was the scene of such abuse in the past.
The screenplay, co-written with Nicole Armbruster, was awarded the Emden Screenplay Prize last year and the Golden Lola for Best German Screenplay during February’s Berlinale.
The cast is headed by Louis Hofmann, who played Tom Sawyer in Hermine Huntgeburth’s Twain adaptation last year, playing a 14-year-old rebelling against the home’s brutal working conditions, with other parts taken by Max Riemelt, Alexander Held and Uwe Bohm.
Edition Salzgeber will be releasing the film theatrically in Germany in 2014.
