FREDERIC CHOPIN and FRANZ LISZT
Recently we have received in our Press Office, the kind visit of the feature film director Milos Twilight, one of the talented Filmmakers who have participated in our ANSFF, being awarded in the 2016 edition with Awards and Special Distinctions of our Festival.
He came to present his new projects, a documentary and a feature film, both based on the emblematic figures of the musicians Frederic Chopin and Franz Liszt, the two most important pianist in the world history.
These projects were developed thanks to the exhaustive work of about thirty years of research by the Argentine filmmaker living in Los Angeles and France, Milos Twilight, along with a large group of researchers, institutions and historians from France, Poland, Italy, Swiss, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Germany.
From these findings and new revelations, a new mega project was born, divided into 4 installments:
“Frederic Chopin and La Nouvelle Athenes” (Documentary)
“Liebestraum” (Feature Film)
“La Nouvelle Athenes, the truth behind the 19th century Myths” (TV series)
“Gothic Revolution“, Biographical book about Frederic Chopin
The shooting of these films are planned to be carried out in the original locations where the historical events took place, traversing the “never seen before” documented facts of the characters through the plot within the imposing landscapes and locations of Poland, Hungary, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Swiss and France, and in cities such as Warsaw, Dresden , Berlin, Vienna, Venice, Geneva and the glorious Paris.
This colossal project has involved the Producers Andrew Vajna, Donna White, Milos Twilight, Brigitte Guillon and Gabriel Fiorentino; with Milos Twilight as the Writer and Director, in addition to the special participation of Jean Claude Menou (former Director of Heritage of French Culture) as narrator of Documentary.
It should be noted that these Projects have the Cultural Interest and Support of renowned personalities and cultural entities from around the world, including:
