“Children of the Sun” Premieres at ICFF “Manaki Brothers”


The jubilee edition of the International Cinematographers’ Film Festival “Manaki Brothers” closes tomorrow night with the premiere of “Children of the Sun”, latest film project of director Antonio Mitrikeski.

The film is a tale of family and loyalty, love and loss, betrayal and redemption. As the mob destroys the life of a big family and leaves them on the brink of survival, a powerful, yet secret love burns between Marko (a gangster) and Angela – two high school sweethearts.

The film is produced by Horizon Film and Revolution Production and is a Macedonian/Serbian/Montenegrin co-production with screenplay by Gordan Mihic, director of photography Jaroslaw Szoda and Zorica Todorova-Mladenovik as a costume designer, with Kire Gjorevski and Ivana Pavlakovic staring in the leading roles of Angela and Marko.

This is Antonio Mitrikeski’s third film following his “Across the Lake”(1997) and the“Like a Bad Dream”(2003).
