Principal photography got underway this week in Toronto on David Bezmozgis’ drama. Mongrel Media holds Canadian rights.

Natasha stars Alex Ozerov, Sasha Gordon and Deanna Dezmari and centres on the slacker son of Russian immigrants who embarks upon an affair with the daughter of his uncle’s intended bride.

The film is scheduled for early 2015 and is based on one of the tales from Bezmozgis’ first published novel, Natasha And Other Stories.  

Bill Marks and Deborah Marks produce the feature, which was made with the backing of Telefilm Canada.
