IN DEVELOPMENT - Braintrust Pictures

Once upon a time, a young Ukrainian boy was being smuggled into the country in the back of a lorry, when he got lost in a deep, dark forest, and took shelter in the ramshackle castle of a reclusive, cantankerous Duke. Chaos, hilarity and a heartwarming and unlikely friendship ensued...

A riotous modern fairytale for all the family, BARTEK AND THE DUKE was selected for Edinburgh Talent Lab 2015 and EIFF Connections 2015, mentored by Peter Ettedgui.  

Directed by Luke Rodgers, Screenplay by Simon Lord Produced by Sam Bank and Hélène Sifre.
