The Sundance Film Festival announced that the US-German co-production, THE TALE, by TRANS ATLANTIC PARTNERS (TAP) alumni Jennifer Fox (USA) and Sol Bondy (Germany), celebrates its world premiere in the US competition at its upcoming edition. THE TALE received early support from TAP in 2013 as a co-production project between Fox’s NY based A Luminous Mind Production and Bondy’s Berlin-based One Two Films. The film was produced with Untitled Entertainment and Blackbird Films, and financed by Gamechanger Films, Artemis Rising Foundation, Fork Films, Weathervane Productions, and Lynda Weinman in the US; ZDF/ARTE and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg in Germany. International Sales are handled by Mongrel International.
TAP is an established international co-production and networking program for feature film and TV drama productions, annually bringing together experienced independent producers from Europe, USA, and Canada to develop TV and feature film projects. The program celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2018 and is presented by the Erich Pommer Institut (EPI), and most recently, the Canadian Media Producers Association (CMPA).
Based on Jennifer Fox's own story, THE TALE is an investigation into one woman's memory as she's forced to re-examine her first sexual relationship and the stories we tell ourselves in order to survive.
