Beta Film and Croatian Drugi Plan together on AmnesiaBeta Film and Croatian Drugi Plan together on Amnesia

Scripted Format | Munich | 20/09/2019

Beta Film partners with Croatian production outlet Drugi Plan on the new show Amnesia, a thrilling six-hour series about refugee and drug trafficking at the south eastern European border. The series, which is currently being co-developed, will star Branka Kati? (Marvel’s Captain America – The Winter Soldier), Tihana Lazovi? (Cannes sidebar Un Certain Regard-winning The High Sun) and Aleksandar Cvjetkovi? (Netflix’s The Paper), director is Goran Gaji? (The Beat). Amnesia will be shot next March in the spectacular surroundings of Plitvice Lakes National Park, the actual route used by many refugees who are fleeing Syria and other war-torn regions.

After suffering a brutal beating, the 17-year-old son of a former mayor awakens from a coma to find he can’t remember who attacked him. This triggers the unveiling of a series of dark secrets in the small Croatian border town, where local authorities are profiting from trafficking operations of both drugs and refugees from the south of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, to Austria and Germany.

Director Goran Gaji?: “The story focusses on a community still scarred by the recent war and the resulting forced population shifts. Human trafficking and drugs are the main sources of income, mostly for a chosen few. With a bleak and claustrophobic future, the only way to survive is – to forget. Everything. Amnesia.”

Beta Film managing director Moritz von Kruedener: “The cooperation on Amnesia is another example of the extending business co-operation with Eastern European partners. Over the last years, we built an impressive portfolio, joining forces with HBO Europe on Agnieszka Holland’s multiple awarded Burning Bush as well as Wasteland, with Robert Dornhelm on Maria Theresa and Dariusz Jablonski on The Pleasure Principle, the first co-production between Poland, Czech Republic and Ukraine.”
