Our Life in Celluloid Dreams’ line-up
by Fabien Lemercier
The team headed by Hengameh Panahi, who last year successfully negotiated sales for the Italian title in competition on the Croisette (Marco Bellocchio’s Vincere [trailer, film focus]), has a second Palme d’Or 2010 contender in its line-up: Outrage by Japan’s Takeshi Kitano.
With a budget of €6.2m, Our Life was 80% produced by Italy via Cattleya in co-production with Rai Cinema and with backing from the Italian Culture Ministry, and 20% produced by France via Babe Films, with a pre-acquisition from Canal + and support from the National Film and Moving Image Centre (CNC) foreign-language film fund.
