The Film & Media Foundation NRW awarded 50,000 euro in August to support a movie (in development) called “High Life” by Claire Denis, Jean-Pol Fargeau, Zadie Smith and Nick Laird.
Short synopsis of the movie on Film & Media Foundation’s website:
“Jean-Pol Fargeau, Claire Denis, Zadie Smith and Nick Laird write “High Life”. Looking for alternative energy sources, the government is sending spaceships. Since there is little hope of return, it offers highly qualified inmates to participate in the flight and therefore to circumvent their death sentences and long prison sentences. (Producer: Pandora Film, € 50,000)”
