CARINA FREIRE IS FILMING STÉPHANE LAMBIEL
Thera Production is the coproducer of Carina Freire's diploma film "The little prince in the land that passes by", currently being shot.
"The idea for this documentary was born the day I personally met Stéphane Lambiel, an ice skater who became famous after winning two world championships. The contrast between his shining public image and the much more humble one he let me see really touched me.
With my small camera, I decided to follow him on his tour through Russia and Eastern Europe, filming the other side of his life as a star."
Thera Production will produce two diploma films this spring.
"Prisoner" by Guillaume Brandt (coproduction with ECAL - Lausanne) will be shot at the beginning of April. Oumar by Badra Haidra (coproduction with HEAD - Genève) will be shot in May in Paris.
