Pulpeiro, lauded worldwide for his sensory and lyrical filmmaking, most recently displayed in the CPH:DOX-selected “So Foul a Sky.” The Galician-born filmmaker said the project was significantly influenced by Pier Paolo Pasolini’s unfinished book “Petrolio,” will draw inspiration “from Michelangelo Antonioni’s “The Passenger” (1975), the visual intensity of “Apocalypse Now” (1979) and the digital noir of “Miami Vice” (2006).” “Petroleo” will compete for the €30,000 ($32,700) Filmin Award for best title in the Film to Come section at the inaugural ECAM Forum co-production market, unspooling June 10-15 in Madrid.
