Kinology Embarks On Mia Hansen-Love’s ‘Eden’

Pic is being buzzed-about as a potential Cannes contender

PARIS — Gregoire Melin’s Kinology has taken international sales on contempo drama “Eden” from France’s rising star director Mia Hansen-Love.

Produced by Charles Gillibert’s Paris-based CG Cinema, “Eden” spans over the last two decades and chronicles the rise and fall of one of the DJs who pioneered the French electro music trend known as the French touch in the 90s. 

The French Touch has given birth to such world-known bands and musicians as Daft Punk, Dimitri From Paris and Cassius.  

Set in Paris and New York, “Eden” toplines Felix de Givry, Golshifteh Farahani, Laura Smet, Vincent Lacoste, Greta Gerwig and Brady Corbet.

In Gaul, “Eden,” whose shooting wraps on Jan. 31, is being buzzed about as a potential Cannes contender.

“We think Mia is a grand filmmaker who belongs to the breed of French directors like Olivier Assayas (“Carlos”) who’s redefined the vision and approach of French auteur filmmaking in the last thirty years.”

Melin added, “The film could be seen as a French twist on ‘The Best of Youth’ set against the backdrop of the French Touch scene.”

Hansen-Love has gained critical recognition since her directorial debut, the Cesar-nommed “Tout est pardonne.” She went on to helm “Father of My Children,” winner of Cannes’ Un Certain Regard jury prize, and “Goodbye First Love,” which won a special mention at Locarno. 

Pic will be delivered in May. Ad Vitam will distribute in France.
