Her third feature, penned with Esther Gerritsen (Dorst, Nena), is based on a true story and follows a train leaving the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp with 2,500 Jewish former prisoners aboard. The train comes to a stop near a German village which is in the path of advancing Russian troops, where three women are forced to pool their resources to survive. The film’s main cast includes Hanna van Vliet, Eugénie Anselin and Anna Bachmann.
This week, Screen International reported that Munich-based sales agent Global Screen had picked up the feature’s world rights. The outfit’s SVP Alice Buquoy confirmed that her team will be presenting first footage and stills at the American Film Market.
