Shooting start MY HAPPY FAMILY

Today started the shooting of MY HAPPY FAMILY, our German-Georgian-French co-production directed by Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon Gross. Their last film IN BLOOM had an incredible festival success and was also Georgia’s Oscars entry for the Best Foreign Film in 2014. MY HAPPY FAMILY is among others supported by the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, BKM, Eurimages, DFFF and ZDF - Das kleine Fernsehspiel.  We are looking forward to some exciting weeks in Tbilisi!

MY HAPPY FAMILY is the story of 52-year-old Manana who is caught up in a conflict between her family and her personal freedom: an adult woman and mother who decides to break free of the rigid family structures and to finally start living her own life…
