Narcosis by director Martijn de Jong and screenwriter Laura van Dijk has been selected for the screenplay contribution of De Oversteek. The project received funding for developing the treatment last March. De Oversteek is a cooperation project by the Film Fund, NPO-Fund, CoBo, VPRO and NTR for young directors who wish to make their first feature film.

Previously Martijn de Jong and Laura van Dijk made One Night Stand Free together, which won awards at the Oldenburg International Film Festival and Nice Film Festival and was nominated for a Golden Calf.

Narcosis is a magical realistic and moving melodrama about a mother and her two young children who need to deal with the death of their husband and father. At the start of next year we will hear if Narcosis has been selected for the realization contribution.
