The project of the film ‘Indolor’, by Uruguayan director Michael Wahrmann, with Portuguese co-production, was awarded at the San Sebastian Festival in Spain.
Indolor is a co-production between Brazil, Argentina and Portugal, through the producer O Som e a Fúria, and was under development in an artistic residency program, parallel to the San Sebastian film festival, and has now been recognized with a monetary award for post-production.
Directed by Michael Wahrmann, a Uruguayan filmmaker and producer based in Brazil, Indolor is presented as a ‘thriller’ about a retired French diplomat who decides to buy, with his wife, a paradise property in northeastern Brazil, after discovering that it was inhabited by a disconcerting descending community of German settlers.
This is a project of the Brazilian producer Sancho & Punta, founded by Michael Wahrmann and Júlia Alves, and has also received support from the European Ibermedia program.
