, which world premiered at the Berlinale Forum in 2016, before stopping off at 60 festivals around the globe and being released in over a dozen regions (including Germany, the UK, the USA and China), Rachel Lang, aFrench filmmaker currently residing in Belgium, will be in attendance with her new project, Mon Légionnaire, at the 35th Cinemart (running from 28 to 31 January) – the co-production platform at the 47th Rotterdam Festival (running from 24 January to 4 February). The project has also been selected for the Rotterdam-Berlinale Express, as part of the Berlinale Co-Production Market (running from 17 to 21 February).

Written by Rachel Lang, the plot unfolds as follows: They come from all over the globe. Now they have one thing in common: they belong to the French Foreign Legion, their new family. Mon Legionnaire tells their stories: that of these couples who are surviving in hostile territory, that of those men who fight for France, that of those women who struggle to keep their love alive. 

In her statement of intent, the filmmaker alludes to the film’s main theme, the question of the couple: “How can one be in the right place, in an equitable and equally intense relationship, with another person? The Foreign Legion puts the couple under great stress-that is why I chose it as my setting. The Legion is the elite of the army and has the reputation of being a real "family". When the legionnaire enlists, he commits to having no life of his own for the next 5 years: he takes a new name, is forbidden to leave the territory, cannot get a loan for an apartment or a car, and is forbidden to marry or to recognize any children. What becomes of a couple in this context?”

Mon Légionnaire is a co-production between the French company Chevaldeuxtrois (Jérémy Forni) and the Belgium company Wrong Men (Benoît Roland). Among the partners involved in the writing and development stages are the CNC, the FWB (Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles), and the local authority of Corisca, the region of Grand Est, the Maison de l'image Basse-Normandie and Procirep-Angoa. Filming is due to commence in Autumn 2018.

It’s worth noting that Chevaldeuxtrois also co-produced Cargo [+lee también:
