The film will reunite Hazanavicius with producer Thomas Langmann and his award-winning production team from The Artist.

The Search tells the story of an NGO worker who forms a special relationship with a young boy in war-torn Chechnya.

It’s based on Fred Zinnemann’s Oscar-winning 1948 film, which is set in post-World War II Berlin.

Shooting is currently underway in the country of Georgia, then will move on to France.
