Öhrman, will be making its world premiere at the 65th Berlinale on February 11, 2015.
The film is a Netherlands-Mexico-Finland-Belgium co-production from Submarine, Fu Works, Paloma Negra Films, Edith Film, Potemkino, and Mollywood.
The official synopsis is below:
In 1931, at the height of his artistic powers, Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein travels to Mexico to shoot a new film to be titled “Que Viva
Mexico.” Freshly rejected by Hollywood and under increasing pressure to return to Stalinist Russia, Eisenstein arrives at the city of Guanajuato.
Chaperoned by his guide Palomino Cañedo, he vulnerably experiences the ties between Eros and Thanatos, sex and death, happy to create their effects
in cinema, troubled to suffer them in life.
Peter Greenaway’s film explores the mind of a creative genius facing the desires and fears of love, sex and death through ten passionate days that
helped shape the rest of the career of one of the greatest masters of Cinema.
