The UK's Tigerlily Films has wrapped production on London-set drama La Chinoise (working title), which is directed by Chinese writer and filmmaker Guo Xiaolu.

Produced by Tigerlily's Natasha Dack through the Warp X Low Budget Initiative, the film follows a Chinese girl who moves to London and her encounters with a series of men.

The cast is headed by Chinese actress Huang Lu who previously starred in Li Yang's Blind Mountain and Cai Shangjun's Red Awn. Andrew Bird (The Edge Of Heaven) is on board as editor and Zillah Bowes is DoP.

In addition to Warp X, which is financed by the UKFC, Film Four, Screen Yorkshire and East Midlands Media, the film has financing from the Hamburg Film Fund and Fonds Sud. Germany's Intervista and France's Rosem Films are co-producing the film.

Optimum Releasing has UK theatrical rights through its output deal with Warp X and a sales agent will be appointed imminently.

Guo, a female novelist and filmmaker, came to international attention with How Is Your Fish Today' which won the Netpac award at Rotterdam and the Grand Prix at the Creteil International Women's Festival last year.

Tigerlily Films has also just wrapped feature documentary Vida Ballet, which was shot in Brazil for Channel 4, and Naples 43-48, Ben Hopkins' latest feature documentary for BBC and Arte. The company's recent feature The Market, co-producedwith Germany, Turkey and Kazahkstan, will screen at the London Film Festival in October.
