We’ve got our hands on a batch of pictures from the set of Colonia Dignidad, the upcoming drama movie directed by Florian Gallenberger based on a script he co-wrote with Torsten Wenzel:
“Set in 1973, a young German couple Daniel and Lena become entangled in a Chilean military coup at a time when there is much protest on the streets against General Augusto Pinochet. When Daniel is abducted by Pinochet’s secret police DINA, Lena tries to find and save her husband.She tracks him to a sealed-off village called ‘Colonia Dignidad’, which presents itself as a charitable mission run by a lay preacher, Paul Schäfer, but is in fact a place which people enter but from which no one has ever emerged. Lena decides to join the cult run by the preacher to attempt to rescue her husband.”
For the scene she has to run Emma Watson prefers to wear Nike trainers, lol! Guess they aren’t filming her feet for that particular scene.
The film is starring Emma Watson as Lena, Daniel Brühl as Daniel, and Michael Nyqvist as Paul Schäfer. The cast also includes Martin Wuttke, Vicky Krieps, Richenda Carey, and August Zirner.
There’s no official release date yet.
