Dasha Trehubova's directorial debut "Her Name Would Be Martha" will receive service and financial support from Slovenia.
As reported by State Cinema, a mystical thriller was supported by the Slovenian Government Film Center and the private film company Viba Film. The film will be the first film co-produced by Ukraine and Slovenia.
The film tells the story of a Ukrainian who returns home with his family after a long work abroad. The family is obliged to undergo observation in a military sanatorium due to the COVID-19 epidemic. On the first day of the settlement, his wife disappears. The man starts searching, but all those who are self-isolating with him claim that he came to the sanatorium alone.
The idea of the film belongs to Dasha Tregubova. Her creative work includes acting in over 70 films and series. She has created 10 more film projects as a creative producer.
"We all remember the beginning of the epidemic and the story of the Novi Sanzhary. We have experienced this, but have we analyzed it? I hope that our film will be a kind of reflection on those events, this is the uniqueness of the motion picture for Ukraine. At the same time, the human relations in the film - with the family, with the world around, with oneself - make the film universal and interesting for people living in other countries," the director said.
For six months, work continued on a screenplay written by Dasha Tregubova, written by Ukrainian writer Symor Hlasenko, author of the screenplay for the Ukrainian detective series "Hide and Seek."
The filming process is scheduled to begin in March 2022.
As it was reported, Oleh Sentsov's film "Rhinoceros" won the international festival in Stockholm.
