All three films (which include ghost story In the Dark Half and bittersweet romantic comedy 8 Minutes Idle) are being sold worldwide by Content.
Flying Blind stars Helen McCrory (Hugo, Skyfall, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and soon to open at the National Theatre in Last Of The Haussmans ) as Frankie, a high-flying aerospace engineer whose ordered existence is undone by a passionate love affair with Kahil, a Muslim student twenty years her junior. The multinational cast also includes French-Algerian Najib Oudghiri (Rendition, The Wedding Song) and Kenneth Cranham (Hot Fuzz, Valkyrie).
The film is the hotly anticipated feature debut of young Polish director Kasia Klimkiewicz whose short Hanoi-Warsaw won the European Film Academy’s Best European Short in 2010.
Following Edinburgh, the film will then screen to buyers at this year’s London UK Film Focus.
Producer Alison Sterling said: “Flying Blind is a British film with an international flavour. Our talented team come from the UK, Poland, France, Sweden and Australia not to mention Scotland, so we feel very privileged to be launching the film at Edinburgh.”
Director Kasia Klimkiewicz said: “I feel really honoured to be launching Flying Blind at Edinburgh. I hope that the film will appeal to audiences from all over the world. I have tried to create a film which addresses universal themes of love and betrayal, in a context which is very much of our times.”
