Chilean filmmaker Dominga Sotomayor, who is one of the directors on Neon’s anthology movie The Year Of The Everlasting Storm which premieres in Cannes next week, is set to write and direct Niebla for RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira.
Film takes place on a cruise ship heading towards a distant nondescript coastline. In the middle of the ocean, the large and eclectic group of international passengers, all seem to be escaping their own realities. Among them Julia, a 35-year-old woman who won the cruise as a raffle prize at work, embarks on what she believes to be a simple vacation and finds herself stuck in a physical and emotional purgatory.
Teixeira and Lourenço Sant’Anna will produce with Alan Terpins executive producing. Project is planning to shoot next year. CAA Media Finance arranged the financing and will represent the sales rights.
Sotomayor also directed Too Late to Die, which won Locarno’s Golden Leopard for Best Direction in 2018, making its helmer the first woman to win that prize.
