Gábor Rohonyi and Csaba Vékes shooting Daddy and Other Wolves
- Szabolcs Thuróczy and young Mór Pásztor-Várady topline this feature being produced by Filmteam, Grund and Blue Duck Arts
The shoot for Daddy and Other Wolves (Szia, Életem!), co-directed by Gábor Rohonyi (his third feature, following Konyec [+see also:
film profile] in 2007 and Brazilians [+see also:
film profile] in 2017) and Csaba Vékes (2017's Beyond the Column [+see also:
film profile]), kicked off in Budapest on 22 June. The cast includes Szabolcs Thuróczy (giving a strong performance in Kills on Wheels [+see also:
film profile] and set to be seen soon in Bullhorn Lullaby), the young Mór Pásztor-Várady, Patrícia Kovács (nominated for the Best Actress Award at the 2016 Hungarian Film Week for Demimonde [+see also:
film profile]), Csaba Vékes himself, Anna Pálmai, Ferenc Elek, Zoltán Mucsi, Péter Scherer, Juli Básti and Bence Tasnádi.
Written by Csaba Vékes, the story depicts an unexpected encounter between a writer who is popular but bereft of inspiration, and his little son, whom he has never seen before. This twisted, cheerful and emotional story of forced coexistence will cross the boundaries of reality thanks to the boy’s imagination…
Produced by Istvan Major for Filmteam, Peter Geszti and Edit Ditz for Grund, and Peter Roskó for Blue Duck Arts, Daddy and Other Wolves has secured support from the NFI (Hungarian National Film Institute). The shoot is taking place in Budapest and its surroundings, with Péter Szatmári serving as DoP. The Hungarian theatrical release is scheduled for the second quarter of 2021.
As a reminder, Filmteam has the recent titles FOMO: Fear of Missing Out [+see also:
