Producers Sven Burgemeister of TV-60Film and Goldkind Film and Andreas Bareiss of BurkertBareiss Development have unveiled their slate of new projects ahead of the world premiere of Luigi Falorni's Heart Of Fire in competition at Berlin today.

Bareiss and partner Gloria Burkert are producing newcomer Su Turhan's feature debut Ayla about honour killings and has a new project with Alain Gsponer (Life Actually) in development.

Meanwhile, TV-60 Film is now in postproduction on Against The Current (Gegen Den Strom), the feature debut of German DoP Jan Fehse, which will be released by X Verleih in Germany and sold internationally by Bavaria Film International. The company is also developing an adaptation of Sebastian Fitzek's thriller novel Amokspiel.

Bareiss's company will also be the German partner for France's Pierre Javaux on Joel Farge's The Children Of The Sea which begins shooting in the Philippines from the end of March. 'It is inspired by a true story and will be produced in a similar way to Heart Of Fire with lay actors speaking in their native language. It will be very authentic,' Bareiss said.

Bareiss and Burgemeister added that they plan to work with Falorni on his next as-yet-untitled feature.
