Zentropa has faith in Straume
by Annika Pham
Faith is based on a script written by the Oscar-nominated Krzysztof Piesiewicz (Three Colours: Red). It tells the story of 20-year-old Madelaine, who moves from her small hometown on the western coast of Norway to Bergen in search of her biological father. Once she finds him, he denies fatherhood but nonetheless feels a connection to Madelaine. As their lives intertwine, we come to understand the dark secrets of their past.
“With artistic forces such as Unni and Piesiewicz behind this project, we are anticipating a beautiful, lyrical film,” said Saunders. The producer who launched Zentropa Norway in January 2009 has several projects in development with other prominent Norwegian filmmakers, including Petter Næss, Jens Lien, and Morten Tyldum.
