), the story revolves around Ahmed, a Syrian refugee who had hoped to find love with Mehdia, an Ethiopian cleaning lady, but it seems impossible in Beirut... Will this pair of sentimental refugees successfully find the path towards freedom, despite the fact that Syrian War survivor Ahmed seems to be consumed by a mysterious illness which is slowly transforming his body into metal?

Dirty, Difficult, Dangerous is produced by Charlotte Vincent on behalf of Parisian firm Aurora Films (who also headed up Heaven Sent), and is co-produced by Lebanon’s Né à Beyrouth Films and by Marco Valerio Fusco on behalf of Italy’s IntraMovies. The feature film enjoys the support of the Italian Ministry for Culture (MiC), the French-Speaking Film Fund - OIF, the Collectivity of Corsica, the Doha Film Institute and the CNC (via its emergency fund for Lebanon). The five-week film shoot will unfold until 2 July between Corsica and Beirut. Distribution in French cinemas will be managed by JHR while international sales are jointly entrusted to IntraMovies and Egypt’s MAD Solutions.

For the record, Aurora Films are currently overseeing post-production on Petite Solange by Axelle Ropert (read our article) and are also set to kick off filming on Blandine Lenoir’s Annie Colère (starring Laure Calamy and Zita Hanrot – article) in mid-June. Recent stand-out works put forward by the firm include If It Were Love [+lee también:
