Rosem Films has boarded Day & Night (Ri-Ri Ye-Ye), the second film by Chinese film-maker Wang Chao, whose first title, The Orphans Of Anyang, made a splash last year in Directors' Fortnight.
Day & Night - a 'rags to riches' tale set in a Chinese mining town, is produced by China's Li-Fang and will start shooting in November this year. Day & Night is not Rosem's Sylvain Burnsztejn first foray into Asian cinema - his company was also involved in Fruit Chan's Venice competition title Hollywood Hong Kong, a co-production with Hong Kong's Golden Network and the UK's Capitol Films.
Burnsztejn is also currently developing a French title, Alain Ross' Chute Libre, an adventure film about a 10 year-old boy who does not like the errattic life his parents' occupation entails -- they are burglars. The film, which is currently being cast will start shooting in the last quarter this year.
