Dutch feature film SILENT CITY by director Threes Anna has been selected for the upcoming edition of the San Sebastian International Film Festival (September 21 – 29). The movie will have its world premiere at the New Directors section of the festival in the presence of the filmmaker.
SILENT CITY is the second feature of director and scriptwriter Threes Anna. She has adapted her own novel with the same title for the screen. Threes Anna made her movie debut in 2007 with the award-winning THE BIRD CAN’T FLY.
SILENT CITY is about Rosa, who arrives in Tokyo to learn the art of filleting fish from the famous Master Kon, Japan´s best fish chef. Because of the difficulty communicating Rosa grows more and more lonely behind the heaps of glistening fish on the working table – waiting to be cleaned. Broke and desperate, Rosa starts work in a night club, entertaining Japanese business men. After a horrible night when one of the guests assaults her, she ends up at the fishing pond of the restaurant, learns to understand the fish and is finally accepted by Master Kon.
SILENT CITY is produced by KeyFilm in co-production with met Samsa Film (Luxembourg) and Skyline Entertainment (Belgium). The international sales rights are handled by NonStop Sales.
