EXCLUSIVE: After winning the Camera D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival last month, Antoneta Alamat Kusijanovic has been signed by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
Murina is a moving and beautifully lensed story set on the Croatian coast, where tensions rise between restless teenager Julija and her oppressive father Ante when an old family friend arrives at their Croatian island home. As Ante attempts to broker a life-changing deal, their tranquil yet isolated existence leaves Julija wanting more from this influential visitor, who provides a taste of liberation over a weekend laid bare to desire and violence. Murina premiered to glowing reviews at Cannes in the Director’s Fortnight category.
Pic is Executive Produced by Martin Scorsese and Emma Tillinger Koskoff of Sikelia Productions, and is produced by Danijel Pek, RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira and Lourenço Sant’Anna, and Sophie Mas, Rodrigo Gutierrez, Carmem Maia and Gustavo Rosa de Moura.
