), Belgium’s Daan Stuyven (best known as a musician and singer, be it in a group or as a solo artist, under the name Daan; also a composer for film; he has made the odd appearance on the big screen to boot, most notably in How Camels Become Lions), Romania’s Lóránt Bocskor-Salló (Children of Glory [+see also:

) and Hungary’s Maya Roberti.

Written by the director, who wishes to reveal as few plot details as possible, Eden is a special love story. It is about a woman in her late thirties who is allergic to everything; therefore, she lives in total isolation.

Produced by József Berger for Mythberg Films, Eden is being co-produced by Oana Giurgiu for Romanian outfit Libra Film, with the involvement of Alain Berliner for Belgian firm WFE. The feature, which is being backed by the Hungarian Film Fund, the Hungarian tax incentive scheme and the MEDIA Programme’s development support, is being filmed until late February, with five additional days scheduled for May. Principal photography is taking place in Mafilm Studios, in Budapest and at various locations in the Hungarian countryside. The DoP is Máté Tóth Widamon (who was awarded at the Hungarian Film Week in 2009 for his work on Pater Sparrow’s 1 and who turned heads in 2014 thanks to his efforts on What Ever Happened to Timi).

Eden will be distributed in Hungarian theatres by Mozinet in 2019 and will be sold overseas by the Hungarian Film Fund.
