If I were a vampire, I'd be staring at the moon a lot too...
...Via Deadline, Filmax has acquired vampire horror flick All the Moons from writer/director Igor Legarreta! A Basque-language film, Filmax is launching the film at EFM, which began shooting last week.
In All the Moons:
"During the final throes of the last Carlist war, a little girl is rescued from an orphanage by a mysterious woman who lives deep inside a forest. Badly wounded and close to death, the girl believes the woman to be an angel who has come to take her to heaven. She soon realizes that in fact this strange being has actually given her the gift of eternal life…by turning her into a vampire.
Left with no choice but to accept her new condition, she has to learn to live in the profound and painful loneliness of time. An infinity of moons go by before, one day, she meets Cándido, a humble man who takes her in and treats her as if she were his own daughter. The little girl is set on a new path, one that will see her rebel against her animalistic nature and revive the hope of getting back the life that was stolen from her.
Director Igor Legarreta told the site, “'All the Moons' is the tale of an epic journey towards the light. A journey from the darkest of nights – a night of war – to the revitalizing clarity of day. Ultimately, it is the journey of a little girl who wants to recover the life that was stolen from her."
The film stars newcomer Haizea Carneros, Joxean Bengoetxea and Itziar Ituno.
Producers are hoping for the film to be ready for release in Q3 of 2020.
