The Czech-Hungarian-Italian-Slovak-Hungarian co-production supported by the National Film Institute has been invited to the Venice Film Festival's Giornate degli Autori program.

The film festival starts on August 31 in Venice. The Giornate degli Autori (Venice Days) program announced a selection of just 10 films focusing on innovation and originality, including Cristina Grosan’s second feature film, “Ordinary Failures,2 a Czech-Hungarian-Italian-Slovak-Hungarian co-production with Hungarian talent.

In this film, starring Vica Kerekes and a largely Czech cast, an inexplicable natural phenomenon interrupts the ordinary day of an eccentric teenager, an anxious mother and a recently widowed woman. As chaos ensues around them, the three women try to get through the day and find their place in the world.

The Hungarian co-producers are Judit Stalter, Gábor Sipos and Gábor Rajna, who co-produced the Oscar-winning “Son of Saul,” among others. The Laokoon Filmgroup, led by producer Judit Stalter, has worked on several successful European co-productions, most recently the Swiss-Hungarian medieval mystery thriller “The Black Spider,” which also starred International Emmy winner Marina Gera, the statement said.
