), the story revolves around Gaspard, Coline and Virgil, who grew up in a zoo. When their mother passed away, they were separated from one another. Skip to the present day, and the siblings are reunited for their father’s second marriage: there’s the one who went far, far away, the one who thinks she’s an animal and the one who feels like he doesn’t fit in. And then there’s their tiny imaginary friend who is meant to protect them.

Produced by Nicolas Blanc for Agat Films, Gaspard va au mariage is benefiting from a pre-purchase from OCS, a €520,000 advance on receipts from the CNC, backing from the Limousin region, and from the La Banque Postale Image and SofiTVciné Soficas. The shoot will take place from 10 October until 25 November in and around Limoges. Interestingly, the music will be composed by Thylacine. French distribution and international sales will be handled by Pyramide.

Agat Films & Ex Nihilo currently has Cornelius, The Howling Miller by Yann le Quellec (read the article), Luna by Elsa Diringer (read the article) and The Young Karl Marx by Raoul Peck (read the article) in post-production, the documentary Adolescentes by Sébastien in production, and La villa by Robert Guédiguian in development.
