Woman at Sea Destined for San Sebastian Aboard Loco Films, Trailer Revealed
Loco Films has secured the international distribution rights to Dinara Droukarova’s debut feature film Woman at Sea, which will have its world premiere in the New Directors section of the San Sebastian Film Festival.
Produced by Marianne Slot and Carine LeBlanc at Slot Machine (“Melancholia”) in Paris, “Woman at Sea” stars Droukarova as Lili, who has left everything behind to travel to the ends of the world to pursue her dream of fishing to meet northern seas, in Iceland. She convinces Ian, a fishing boat skipper, to give her a chance and embarks on the Rebel. She is the only woman in the crew, but she will win everyone’s respect thanks to her determination and courage.
“We are proud of this first film, shot in the rough North Sea, about a young woman seeking the fresh air of freedom. A beautiful and free film and the birth of a new director,” said Laurent Danielou, Founder and President of Loco Films.
Shot in French, English and Icelandic, the film is co-produced by Mystery Productions, Gulldrengurinn and Gullslottið. Co-producers are Davíð Óskar Ólafsson, Benedikt Erlingsson, Sergey Selyanov, Genevieve Lemal and Julie Gayet. Slot Machine is best known as a co-producer of Lars von Trier’s films.
