'Confrontations' by Simone Atangana Bekono will be filmed by Hollands Licht
Simone: 'I am honoured that, together with Hollands Licht, I can once again dive into the world of Confrontations. I think this will be a great, original adaptation of the book: a series that stands on its own without letting go of the characters, tensions and absurdities that tell Salomé's story.
Mark Furstner (producer Hollands Licht): 'Confrontations is a dazzling debut novel by a unique Dutch writing talent that is not only appreciated in the Netherlands but also abroad. It's fantastic that Simone entrusted us with this and stayed involved with the writing and production of the series. It is a personal coming-of-age story that simultaneously makes us feel how people try to fix injustice and other inconsistencies in life with revenge, imprisonment and carnival.
Translation rights of the novel have been sold to the USA (Bloomsbury), UK (Serpent's Tail) and Turkey (Fidan).
