One of 15 projects selected for the 9th edition of the Cannes L’Atelier’s, announced this morning - an initiative whose goal is to provide directors and their producers the opportunity to meet potential international producing and financing partners during the Cannes Film Festival...

Days of Cannibalism by South African filmmaker Teboho Edkins -  a project in which Edkins plans to combine a mix of fiction and documentary-style filmmaking to tell the Days of Cannibalism story, which will focus on the "increasingly more important trade relations between China and African countries," a topic that's been addressed by a number of films we've covered on this blog - most recently, When China met Africa.

And with a title like Days of Cannibalism, combined with such a potentially explosive subject, I can only image what the filmmaker is cooking up for us.

His last film, titled Gangster Project, is said to have used a similar mixed fiction/doc style.

One thing we love doing here at S&A is learning about intriguing and interesting-sounding projects early in their development, and track their progress over time, until they become full-realized films. This is another one that will be added to our "watch-list" and that we'll report on as noteworthy news is released.

Days of Cannibalism was also selected from a record 399 entries, to receive grants from Rotterdam's IFFR fund last fall, for script development, digital production, post-production, distribution or workshops.

Stay tuned...
