In 2008 one of the highlights of Titanic Film Festival was the superb Danish doc, the raw and uncompromising "Ghosts of Cité Soleil
" from the Haitian ghetto. Now director Asger Leth
is ready to embark on his first feature film.
The 37-year-old Danish director recently announced that his next
project is a Hollywood production featuring Sean Penn. The film with
the working title "Cartel" will be produced by Universal Pictures and
Imagine Entertainment. Asger Leth won the attention of an American
audience with "Ghosts of Cité Soleil", winning both the DGA Award for
best documentary director in Los Angeles and an award for production at
the Cinema Eye Honours in New York.
