Italy’s Buskin Film on board.

Amazon Falls director Katrin Bowen tells Screen that her next film, Off Course “is about another really close call where my survivor skills kicked in big time.”

Drawing upon a harrowing personal experience as a 20-year-old hostage, the 40-year-old Versace-model-turned writer/director recounts “living on the edge” in Riccione, Italy.

Italy’s Buskin Film is attached to the $3-5 million drama, and Bowen is speaking with potential Canadian co-production partners at TIFF.
