The fantasy-mystery is being directed by Carlo Hintermann, with Terrence Malick executive producing, and “follows a young Italian doctor named Eva (Verbeek) who, while studying the history of medicine at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, discovers an 18th-century text about a Prussian doctor (dance) which hides a mystery. As Eva studies the book, she brings back to life the stories it contains.
Italian filmmaker Hintermann served as second unit director on Malick’s The Tree of Life, and has also co-written a book and directed a documentary on the U.S. auteur. The Book of Vision marks his directorial debut, and filming is now underway in Belgium.
