CALIMA

 

Produced by Meridional Producciones and Jugoplastika (Spain)

 

 

Genre: Thriller

Format: 8 x 50’

Logline: “Calima” is a thriller, with a cinematographic look and feel, about a peculiar detective, who uncovers the best kept secret of an unusual village dominated by the wind.

Synopsis: José García Gago is a peculiar yet brilliant private detective, who accepts a job that takes him back to his native village after a thirty-year absence, charged with the task of uncovering the true culprit behind the murder of Don Pedro, a famous local businessman. Reopening so many old wounds will rock the foundations of this land that has managed, for so long, to keep its dark secret hidden, while our detective will also have to face the ghosts of a past that still torments him to this day. 

 

 

 

 

PACIENT SH

 

Produced by Bionaut (Czech Republic)

 

Genre: mystery

Format: 5 x 90 ‘

Logline: Brilliant private detective in 1980s Czechoslovakia, when nothing was private.

Synopsis: When you’re a brilliant detective mastermind, solving crimes is easy. When you’re locked up in a mental hospital in communist Czechoslovakia with the state secret police nosing around, it’s a bit more difficult. But when you’ve lost your memory and the case to solve is your own? Close to impossible.

 

 

 

 

THE DRAMA QUEENS OF KABUL

Produced by Rantan Productions (Australia)

 

 

Genre: Dramedy

Format: 8 x Commercial Hour

Logline: When their production company fails, two, thirty-something, Australian women move to war-torn Afghanistan to lead a ragtag team of TV novices in making the country’s first police action series.

Synopsis: A comedy-drama about thirty-something Australian best friends and business partners, Pippy and Sophie, who wind up broke after their television production company fails. They go to work in Afghanistan where they lead a team of ethnically diverse, inexperienced, Afghans in making the first, post-Taliban soap opera. Kabul is a party town. But when an American, ex-military, friend dies of a drug overdose, they are devastated. The unexpected news that their Australian show is back up, divides them over the decision to leave. They reunite after Pippy is caught up in a bomb attack vowing to stay together, no matter what.
