Two young Slovak actresses, Lucia Siposová and Gabriela Marcinková, are featured in an international romantic drama called 360, which will be screened at the Art Film Fest in Trenčianske Teplice, the TASR newswire reported.
The movie, directed by Fernando Meirelles, tells the story of a series of interconnected relationships, TASR wrote, with the first concerning a Slovak prostitute played by Siposová. Siposová and Marcinková landed their roles after auditions before Meirelles, who insisted that the Slovak prostitutes in the film should be played by Slovak citizens.
When shooting the film the actresses had the opportunity to work with two movie stars, Jude Law and Anthony Hopkins. The Art Film Fest will take place between June 16 and 23.
