Beta Film has teamed up with Award-winning director, writer, and producer Jasmila Žbanić for the the drama series "I Know Your Soul."
The world premier for "I Know Your Soul" will take place at this year’s Venice Film Festival. The Bosnian drama is among a growing slate of prestige productions Beta is selling from Eastern Europe as part of the company’s initiative to co-finance and co-produce more projects in the CEE region.
The drama is produced by Deblokada and BH Content Lab for BH Telecom, with Beta Film serving as distirbutor. Žbanić operates as showrunner, adding another drama to her established slate of content, which includes HBO’s Emmy-nominated "The Last of Us" and multi-awarded Oscar and BAFTA nominee "Quo Vadis, Aida?"
Consisting of six one-hour episodes, "I Know Your Soul" is led by European Film Award-winning actress Jasna Đuričić, who plays Nevena Murtezic, a prosecutor in the process of divorce and single mother to a teenage son. The case of an adolescent’s suicide triggers an avalanche of events in her professional and private life, as she finds it increasingly difficult to balance her son Dino (Lazar Dragojević) and a job that is under constant public and political pressure.
