New movie ‘All That I Am’ is set to be filmed in Sydney and Berlin later this year. Eliza Scanlen, Evan Rachel Wood, Vanessa Redgrave and Rufus Sewell are all reported as having major roles (Variety).
The story is based on the award winning book of the same name (by Aussie author Anna Funder) and follows four German-Jewish pacifists who flee to London when Hitler comes to power.
Sixty years after fleeing the Nazis, remaining survivor of the group, Ruth Wesemann (Vanessa Redgrave), is living in Sydney. One day she receives a package containing the memoirs of her old friend Ernst Toller that bring back memories of how they smuggled classified documents from Nazi Hermann Goering’s office into Britain.
The production is the first feature film for Australian Director, Kate Dennis. Her previous directing credits include The Handmaid’s Tale, Offspring, Rake, Suits and GLOW.
Can’t wait for this to start, more to come.
