Jordanian director Rifqi Assaf is in post-production on his debut feature The Curve, co-produced by Jordan’s The Imaginarium Films and Egypt’s Film Clinic.
The road movie stars Palestinian actor Ashraf Baehoum, Syrian actor Falina Laila and Lebanese actor Mazen Moadam. The story revolves around a man suffering from social phobia and a woman in distress who set out on a journey to the Syrian border on a minibus.
“We want to finish the film by March 2014 if we can find the finishing funds,” said producer Rula Nasser of The Imaginarium Films.
Nasser will also be the line producer in Jordan for Ali F Mostafa’s road movie A To B which starts shooting in February next year. She also produced Mais Darwazah’s My Love Awaits Me By The Sea, which is screening in the Muhr Arab Competition at this year’s DIFF.
Her upcoming projects include Jordanian director Yahya Alabdallah’s Me, Myself And Murdoch, which won one of the top three DFC awards in 2012.
