Shot entirely in Asia, and in Japanese, this international co-production (between France, Germany, Belgium and Italy) tells the story of soldier Hiroo Onoda, who was sent to an island in the Philippines in 1944, to fight against the American offensive. As Japan surrenders, Onoda ignores it and, trained to survive at all costs in the jungle, he keeps his war going. It will take him 10,000 days to surrender, as he blindly refuses to believe that World War II has come to an end. The screenplay was penned by Harari himself and Vincent Poymiro.

According to the Cannes Film Festival, the film teeters between Kon Ichikawa's Fires on the Plain, Josef von Sternberg’s Anatahan and They Were Expendable by John Ford. With lighting by Tom Harari, the director’s brother, Onoda - 10 000 Nights in the Jungle is a staggering inner odyssey, an intimate and universal view of the world and history itself.

Executive-produced by Nicolas Anthomé (one of European Film Promotion’s Producers on the Move in 2018 – see the interview) for bathysphere, Onoda - 10 000 Nights in the Jungle was co-produced by Pandora Filmproduktion, Frakas Production, Ascent Film and To Be Continued, with Arte France Cinéma and Rai Cinema. Its international sales are handled by Le Pacte, which will also release it in French theatres on 21 July.
