Ventana Sur: Brazilian thriller 'The French Teacher', ‘feverish’ Swiss drama 'The Jungle' among Proyecta pitches

Collaboration with San Sebastian Film Festival to foster co-productions with Latin America.

Filmmakers let fly with their pitches on Tuesday (10) at the inaugural Proyecta session organised by Ventana Sur and San Sebastian Film Festival to foster co-productions with Latin America.

Among those under the spotlight are The Jungle, a Swiss project that director Matthias Huser explained was a 1970s-set family drama that morphs via a “feverish” storytelling tone into an experimental film.

The film centres on Sheila, who returns to her childhood home where her dying father tries to convince her to continue his life’s work and protect a patch of jungle.
