The shooting of the feature Corporation by the director Matej Nahtigal begins
On Friday, 9 November, the shooting of the second feature by the director Matej Nahtigal with the working title Corporation began. The script for it was written by Zoran Benčič, writer, lyricist, and vocalist of the band Res Nullius.
According to the director, the film is a crime drama, aesthetically inspired by "neo-noir" and conspiracy thrillers from the 1970s. The story focuses on a criminal investigator who, at his own initiative, investigates the intricacies of a business deal involving the authorities trying to evict the inhabitants from a certain part of the city, tear everything down, and build a new complex with the assistance of an influential corporation. The film discusses the will and strength of individuals, the struggle against institutions, individual engagement, as well as decisions made behind the scenes.
The director's first film Case: Osterberg, based on the novel by Zoran Benčič, received the International Federation of Film Critics (Fipresci) Award in 2015, at the 18th Festival of Slovenian Film in Portorož.
Starring: Primož Vrhovec, Uroš Fürst, Jana Zupančič, Jelena Perčin Otašević, Katarina Stegnar, Ivo Barišič, Niko Goršič, Borut Veselko, Pia Zemljič, and Marinko Prga.
The film was co-financed by the Slovenian Film Centre and co-produced by RTV Slovenija. It was produced by the Lignit film production house and co-produced by the Croatian production company Jaako dobra produkcija. According to the plan, the shooting should conclude on 23 December, after a total of thirty days.
