by Fabien Lemercier
- Young French filmmaker is working on his first feature film, produced by Les films du clan and sold by Indie Sales
Filming commenced on Romain Laguna's first feature film, Meteorites [+see also:
film profile], on 14 August. A La Fémis graduate, the filmmaker, who already has four short films to his name – J'mange froid, Bye Bye Mélancolie, Run and A trois sur Marianne – has reunited Zéa Duprez, Bilal Agab, Nathan Le Graciet and Oumaima Lyamouri at the casting call.
Co-written with Salvatore Lista (Eat Your Bones [+see also:
film profile], Who's Your Daddy? [+see also:
film profile]), the film takes place in the south of France during the summer months, between the vineyards of the Red Lands of Béziers and the sandy burned deserts of Sète. Between Alex and Morad. Nina, 17, travels through the regions. She is the only who has seen the meteorite, almost as if it were an omen...
Produced by Charles Philippe and Lucille Ric for Les films du clan, Meteorites has received an advance on earnings as well as the Images of Diversity Fund from CNC. Support has also been received from the Occitanie region and Cineventure 3. Filming will continue until 27 September in Béziers, Montpellier, Agde and Valras. Indie Sales is responsible for international sales.
It’s also worth noting that the young Parisian company Les Films du Clan is involved in the post-production of another first feature: Lea Frédeval's Les Affamés [+see also:
