In one of its first major pick-ups since its launch earlier this spring, Dreamachine has announced start of production on Oscar winner Caroline Link's Aftermath.

The film is co-produced by Constantin Film and Bavaria Film and will be shot on location in Germany. Dreamachine will handle worldwide sales.

Writer-director Link (Nowhere In Africa) has adapted the screenplay from the novel by Scott Campbell.

'After working with Constantin on The Elementary Particles we are delighted to be developing our relationship through Aftermath because we believe passionately that this beautiful and ultimately uplifting and cathartic story will touch audiences' hearts,' commented Hengameh Panahi, Co-Chairman of Dreamachine.

Aftermath is the story of a bereaved family's attempt at healing and a return to normality.

The cast is led by Karoline Herfurth, Corinna Harfouch, Josef Bierbichler and Hanns Zischler.

The film is produced by Uschi Reich and Martin Moszkowicz and executive produced by Robert Cort and Scarlett Lacey.
