Other films in Jinga’s Cannes line-up include Federico Zampaglione’s Shadow and Darren Ward’s A Day Of Violence.
Sales and production outfit Jinga Films is taking the Balkan route. The UK genre specialist is partnering with Serbian production company Contra Film and will be giving a market premiere to Contra’s A Serbian Film during Cannes.
Directed by Srdjan Spasojevic and executive produced by Nikola Pantelic, A Serbian Film stars Srdjan Todorovic (Underground) as a retired porn star lured back into the industry by a diabolical director (Sergej Trifunovic – War Inc) who has unthinkable terrors in store for him.
“Fans of extreme, intelligent films such as Irreversible, Martyrs and Antichrist are in for a real treat,” said Jinga’s Julian Richards of A Serbian Film. ”It’s an angry political allegory wrapped up in some of the most disturbing scenes ever caught on camera and since its world premiere at SXSW, internet buzz has been so enthusiastic that several distributors have already made offers, sight unseen.”
Other films in Jinga’s Cannes line-up include Federico Zampaglione’s psychological horror Shadow, Jac Schaeffer’s sci-fi romantic comedy Timer, John Michael Elfer’s giallo homage Finale and Darren Ward’s gangster thriller A Day Of Violence.
