Karl Baumgartner, obituary

19 March 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

International co-production and co-production markets around the globe will not be the same now following the news that the internationally respected German producer-distributor Karl  Baumgartner has died at the age of 65.

Known affectionately by friends and colleagues alike as ¨Baumi¨,  Baumgartner hailed from the South Tyrol, but was ¨ at home¨ in different countries and cultures, working with film-makers on projects located in some of the seemingly most inaccessible or logistically nightmarish  parts of the planet.

Hearing him recount the making of Bakhtiar Khudojnazarov’s Luna Papa at one of the countless co-production panels with his tales of the shooting being stopped by floods washing the set away, the outbreak of civil war and being evacuated by the Red Cross floods, one often wondered whether he purposely looked for such challenges.

Not to speak of the challenge of putting such delicate and time-consuming co-production structures together involving tried-and-tested production partners, public funders and broadcasters from across Europe and beyond »

First look of 'Angry Indian Goddesses' revealed

18 January 2014 11:49 PM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Mumbai, Jan 19: Looks like actress Sarah-Jane Dias will essay a photographer in her international project titled "Angry Indian Goddesses" directed by Pan Nalin.

The first look of the movie was revealed and Sarah can be seen carrying a Canon camera in the picture. It seems she is on a boat as the background has water with a row of trees that looks like an island.

Nalin, who has previously directed features such as "Samsara" and "Valley of Flowers", says the movie is "a light-hearted female buddy film".

"We have tried to deal with contemporary issues related to women without being preachy. It's made with the sensibility of my earlier films and is not-over-the-top. But it's my most commercial film till date," Nalin. »
