Hypermarket Film’s Slate Funding 2019:


Hypermarket Film production company develops a slate of three creative documentary projects by three distinctive directors from the Central and Eastern European region. A new film by the Czech director Filip Remunda entitled IT’S NOT MOSCOW HERE, is a visually strong story of a sportsman, bricklayer, anti-regime activist and admirer of the President at the same time, living in the tough remote region of Russia. Second film FAMILY is by the renowned Russian director Vitaly Mansky, bringing an unprecedented insight into an extraordinary Russian family, unfolding a dramatic tension within the 20-member family micro-cosmos, but also the contradictions rising from the ambivalent approach of the authoritarian Russian state. Third project CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE is by the award-winning Slovak director Robert Kirchhoff, a film about two forgotten heroes Rudolf Vrba and Alfred Wetzler who escaped Auschwitz determined to warn the world about the truth unfolding behind the gates of Nazi concentration camps, and to provide the Allies with the first eyewitness accounts detailing the systemic mass murder taking place there. The film poses important questions right in time of the growing extremistic tendencies all over Western world and strives to write back into history what is gradually fading into oblivion in our collective consciousness. All three projects are planned to be European co-productions involving Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Russia and Lithuania.
