“Three months ago this promise seemed impossible to keep”… this is the line Nastassja Kinski delivers in the film as her character is about to climb a peak in the Dolomites…
well, it is not so far from our reality as after months and months of intense work (ok, we did also have fun in the process!) we are finally able to announce “the” date to be put on your diaries! 12th of November 2012: Screening of the film “The Nightshift belongs to the stars” for cast, crew and friends!
Address: Piazza Bartolomeo Romano 8 in Rome, Italy.
It will all happen at the Palladium, the historical building in the maze of streets, stairs, palms and unique homes of Roman neighborhood Garbatella. A very dear place to our scriptwriter Erri De Luca which will certainly make us feel among friends, “tra amici” as they say in Italy!
They will all be there: writer Erri de Luca, director Edoardo Ponti, producers Silvia Bizio & Paola Porrini Bisson, actor Enrico Lo Verso and the crew, all thrilled to get to know you and finally share this film with you, the audience…after all, this is what making movies is about!
…and…a special thank you to our angels Silvia D, for coordinating, and Simona, for helping us with this special place: Palladium!
only 15 hours left..!!!
La pioggia di questi giorni cancella le nostre tracce dalla montagna. Anche il ricordo si annebbia: ci siamo davvero stati su per i monti a fare il nostro cortometraggio?
Yesterday last day of shooting for the film “Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle” (The Night shift is covered by the stars) and the last take was given by the mountain, with a storm which sent the whole team into the dressing room: it was only fitting that the mountain would write the word “The End” to this lucky film. Last climbing steps by Nastassja Kinski on the Dolomites: the lightest ones so far. Post production will take place in Los Angeles under the direction of Edoardo Ponti, and the mix Pacific Ocean/Dolomites will be worthy of fireworks! Welcome back home to Edoardo, Nastassja, Julian, Enrico. Erri remains in the Dolomites.
Enrico Lo Verso and his first day of shooting…great emotions for all of us…
After a quick bout of hail and rain the sky opened and the sun came through to give its welcome to the short, “The Night Shift is Covered by the Stars, which started shooting today on the mountains of Val di Fassa, in the Dolomites. Director Edoardo Ponti braved the cold of the early morning to direct actor Enrico Lo Verso and writer Erri De Luca, whose wonderful story about two people embarking on a hopeful journey to health after serious heart operations, gave birth to this wonderful project. The film will continue shooting all week in Trentino, where Julian Sands will join the rest of the cast and crew, before wrapping on July 10th. And tomorrow, Nastassja Kinski will shoot her first day while climbing a “ferrata”, a difficult mountain trail, in preparation for the final climb the characters embark towards the top.. stay tuned for more from the set of “Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle!”
