Scorsese Producing the Next Film from His Protégé Celina Murga

November 29, 2010

Murga / Scorsese

In case you didn't know, the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative paired young Argentinian director Celina Murga with iconic filmmaker Martin Scorsese for a year of creative collaboration. During that time Scorsese provided extensive advice on a treatment and script that Murga was developing. Sounds like the ultimate film school to me! Now a helpful learning experience might be turning into a lucrative career boost as we've been told Scorsese will executive produce La Tercer Orilla (or The Third Side of the River) which tells the story of a16-year-old forced to choose between his father's wishes and his own freedom. Read on!

In addition to executive producing the film, Scorsese has also provided some great exposure to the international film community as she searches for funding on La Tercer Orilla, which is actually her third feature film. Apparently Scorsese is also interested in editing the film once the project gets off the ground. As if that wasn't enough of a great opportunity, The Rolex Arts Initiative is continuing to help bolster her career with the $25,000 that each protégé receives upon the conclusion of their mentoring year.

I can't imagine a better way to be thrust into the filmmaking spotlight than working with one of cinema's greatest filmmakers. If you want to read and see more on this really sweet mentoring program sponsored by Rolex, head on over to their official website to get the lowdown on all the different artists, especially on the year of mentoring from Martin Scorsese. We'll likely hear about La Tercer Orilla sometime down the road on the festival circuit, so stay tuned. Sound good?

    Whoa, now that is an excellent opportunity. But I can't help but think that his style and sheer epic film-making signature might be squandered on this, judging by the description of the script.
