Accidents of Fate
A German man living in Oxford, accused of being a spy, is whisked away from his life of privilege and faces a series of accidents of fate, which tests his will to survive.
Accidents of Fate is a timely and compelling movie based on IP we have acquired the full rights to. Set at the beginning of World War Two Accidents Of Fate provides a fresh perspective on the conditions and attitudes towards foreign nationals in Britain during the time of war. While the main story follows an accused spy, through his turbulent journey we explore themes of loss, propaganda, the threat of war, deportation, and ultimately – enduring hope.
For us, representation is key, and World War Two historical dramas, often lack diversity. We have crafted a narrative integrated with characters from diverse backgrounds to tell a unique and satisfying story.
This film not only references current debates around immigration and nationality but also diversifies given UK history, whilst striving to give a historically accurate account of the British internment policy of foreign nationals during World War 2. We are in the process of packaging the film and have a full pitch deck available. Shooting UK, Germany & Australia.
