World Premiere of Luxembourg film 50 Days in the Desert

Published Tuesday December 22 2015

50 Days in the Desert - A Luxembourg production by Fabrizio Maltese will premiere January 9-10, 2016 at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

The photographer and documentarian Fabrizio Maltese followed the seven-week shoot of The White Knights in Morocco to document the creative process of its director, cast and crew.

Rather than simply offering a glossy, publicity-ready peek behind the scenes, the film records the arduous, week-by-week process of collaborative creation on set, offering unrivaled insight into what a filmmaker faces when trying to realize his vision of an extremely ambitious project, how he struggles to handle unexpected setbacks and on-set egos and how the actors and technicians deal with the occasionally rather unusual methods of their director.
