Celluloid Dreams is entering the AFM with a pair of sexy new films. We Are The Night comes from The Wave director Dennis Gansel and Rat Pack Filmproduktion. The Berlin-based female vampire drama stars Karoline Herfurth, Nina Hoss, Jennifer Ulrich, Anna Fischer and Max Riemelt.
When Lena is bitten by the leader of a female vampire trio, she instantly succumbs to her newfound lifestyle but the blood lust of her comrades ultimately proves too much for her to take. In love with an undercover cop, Lena decides to turn her back on the bloodsuckers igniting their fury.
The film was written by Gansel and Jan Berger and is produced by Christian Becker. Principal photography began in Berlin on October 11 and is slated to wrap mid-December. Constantin will release the film in Germany in October 2010.
Also new from Celluloid is documentary Crazy Horse, about Paris’s famed nude revue. Director Frederick Wiseman spent ten weeks filming the intricate workings of the club which was founded in 1951 by Alain Bernardin.
Wiseman captures the elegance, perfectionism and gruelling schedule that go into making the Crazy Horse tick. The film is set within the framework of the unveiling of a new show, Desir, choreographed by Philippe Decoufle.
Crazy Horse is produced by Wiseman via his Zipporah Films and Pierre-Olivier Bardet via Idéale Audience. Shooting recently wrapped.
