Shooting of MY HAPPY FAMILY begins

Today  the shooting of MY HAPPY FAMILY started, our German-Georgian-French co-production directed by Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon Gross. Their last film IN BLOOM was an incredible festival success and was also Georgia’s Oscars entry for the Best Foreign Film in 2014. MY HAPPY FAMILY is supported by Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, BKM, Eurimages, DFFF and ZDF - Das kleine Fernsehspiel amongst others.  We are looking forward to some exciting weeks in Tbilisi!

MY HAPPY FAMILY is the story of 52-year-old Manana who is caught up in a conflict between her family life and her personal freedom: an adult woman and mother who decides to break free of the rigid family structure and finally start living her own life…
