The first post-Covid19 film shootings in Greece for an international production, started οn Monday, on the island of Amorgos. The Greek part of the production is being undertaken by the Heretic film production company founded by George Karnavas and Konstantinos Kontovrakis. This is the first international production to begin shooting outside its country of production across Europe.
The film “Daughters” is based on the best-selling novel “Daughters” by German author Lucy Fricke. The German press has described it as “an exciting road movie in book form, so comical and so sensitive that you burst out laughing and crying at the same time.”
The film tells the story of two childhood friends in Berlin, who set out on a trip to Switzerland with a dying father in the backseat, who seems to have only one wish: assisted suicide in a swiss special institute. It’ s going to be one last, final ride, but nothing ends, as you had imagined, certainly not life. This journey will lead them not only to Greece but also to the core of the family and their own lives.
The film, directed by German director Nana Neul, will also be shot in Germany and Italy.
The international cast features Birgit Minichmayr in the lead role, award-winning Alexandra Maria Lara, Josef Bierbichler, Giorgio Colangeli, Andreas Konstantinou, Michalis Sarantis, Alexandros Mylonas, Zoe Rigopoulou and Dimitris Verikios, among others.
