Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

Active in production, distribution and - for the past two years - international sales, the Marseille-based company Shellac, steered by Thomas Ordonneau, will be arriving at the 72nd Locarno Film Festival (running 7 to 17 August) well-armed, wielding no less than three titles which are all in the running for the Golden Leopard 2019 (including one co-production). The firm is also heading up French distribution of these works, as well as piloting worldwide sales for two of the three.

(Berlinale Forum 2014). Featuring in the cast are Belgium’s Arieh Worthalter, alongside the filmmaker herself, Liv Henneguier, Juliette Augier, Françoise Lebrun and Florence Thomassin, among others. Written by the filmmaker, the story centres around the character of Frank who loses his black market job and, believing that he and Maroussia will no longer be able to love one another in the way they once did, ups and leaves in order to earn as much as his partner: twelve thousand - just enough for the two of them to live for a year. No more and no less. Over the course of his proletarian odyssey, he becomes the hero that he always dreamed of being. But it comes at a price… The film is produced by Mathieu Bompoint on behalf of Mezzanine Films and by Gilles Sandoz on behalf of Maïa Productions. The music, meanwhile, is composed by Rodophe Burger.

(co-directed with Kohei Igarashi) which had its world premiere in the Venice Film Festival’s Horizons competition in 2017. The movie stars Agathe Bonitzer, Manon Carpentier, Marika Zizzy and American dancer and choreographer Elsa Wolliaston. Written by the director and Julien Dieudonné, the story unfolds around the farewell solo intitled "Mother" which the legendary dancer Isadora Duncan choreographed following the death of her two children. A whole century later, four women are overwhelmed in their discovery of this piece… Produced by MLD Films in co-production with the JeonJu Cinema Project, the full-length film will also be distributed by Shellac in France as of November.

And finally, Shellac will also make an appearance in Locarno’s international competition with Technoboss [+lee también:
