Introducing Her Song: Comedy-Drama Feature

eTradeWire News/10771158
Film slated for production this summer in the French Pyrenees boasts international cast, acclaimed executive producers.

NEW YORK - eTradeWire -- Academy-Award-winner JAMES IVORY (Call Me by Your Name) and ERIC GRUENDEMANN (producer of the 90s Emmy-winning series Xena: Warrior Princess) team up to Executive-Produce Her Song, a comedy-drama feature film in French and English written and to be directed by JOHN M. KELLER, an American screenwriter, director and novelist.

They are joined by KALKI KOECHLIN, the Bollywood phenomenon and Filmfare award-winner, in her first lead role in French and American English.

Olivia, an American novelist—portrayed by Koechlin—seeks to tell the story of her grandmother, who fled Paris during the Nazi invasion of WWII. When Olivia returns to her ancestral village to retrace her grandmother's journey for the book, she encounters a talented Frenchwoman (she can cut hair, stain glass and re-wire electricity…) whose life story provides an abundance of details she begins to guiltily "steal." But then the coronavirus pandemic strikes, and Olivia witnesses a sudden exodus of people from French cities to villages. Three storylines (her grandmother's, her own and the book's) begin to intersect uncannily, each providing clues to the mysteries of the others, while Olivia scribbles her book, wondering if she's either the center of the universe, or if we all are, if we only paid attention. In any case, the Frenchwoman is keeping a secret, not just from Olivia, but from everyone else, that might provide the perfect ending to her story, if only Olivia knew about it.
