Schloendorff, Doerrie pix collect coin

Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg hands cash to 21 Euro projects

COLOGNE — Pics helmed by Volker Schloendorff and Doris Doerrie are among 21 European projects to receive coin from Teutonic funding body Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.

Schloendorff will be helming and producing “Ulzhan,” from Jean-Claude Carriere’s screenplay, telling the story of a Frenchman’s trip to Kazakhstan.

A trip abroad also is the theme of Doerrie’s “Hanami,” about a widower searching for his estranged son in Japan.

Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg is giving 19 other projects a share of some $2 million, with an emphasis on international co-productions.

Coin is going to the John Irvin helmed biopic “Albert Schweitzer”; Italy-set comedy “Marcello Marcello,” helmed by Denis Rabaglia; the Maren Ade helmed “Alle Anderen”; psycho thriller “La Chambre d’ami,” helmed by Christian de Chalonge; and to the Ilya Khrzhanovsky helmed drama “Dau,” about a physicist wunderkind.

The French-German Film Commission also has announced an allocation of funds. It gave some $1.2 million to three pics: “35 Rhums” by Claire Denis, “Ein Fall fuer Freunde” by Toni Loeser, and “Die Frauen des Anarchisten” by Peter Sehr and Marie Noelle.
