German director Max Gleschinski, whose 2018 debut feature, Kahlschlag [+lee también:
ficha de la película], a thriller-cum-love story, won the German Cinema New Talent Award at the Hof International Film Festival, is now readying his sophomore film. Described as “an elegiac ghost story in four chapters”, Alaska will centre on Kerstin, a woman in her mid-forties. Having looked after her ill father for 20 years until his death, she tries to get back on track by embarking on a kayak tour through the Mecklenburg Lake Plateau. While on her trip, she falls in love with Alma, another woman who is water hiking. Yet when Kerstin’s estranged brother shows up to discuss their inheritance, she is not inclined to get involved in the discussion.
With a script penned by Gleschinski himself, the upcoming feature will star Christina Große as Kerstin. Pegah Ferydoni, Karsten Antonio Mielke and Milena Dreissig are also among the cast.
Shooting took place this year in Mirow, wrapping in mid-September. The production of Alaska was backed by the Filmförderung Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and by the German Minister of Culture and Media (BKM). Alaska was also amongst the projects nominated in the Best Screenplay category at the 2021 Lola Awards (a category intended for scripts not yet in production).
The film is being produced by Germany’s Wood Water Films (Jasper Mielke, Karoline Henkel and Arto Sebastian) in co-production with ZDF/Das Kleine Fernsehspiel. The German release of Alaska will be handled by missingFILMs.
