“Sandra Munt and the Dagger of Kenhotep” , written and directed by Rubén Arnaiz is the second segment of the independent fantastic film “DOUBLE FEATURE”,. The other segment, “Troubled Rivers”, written and directed by Enrique Diego is finished and waiting for our part to be shoot.
Sandra Munt is a fictional character created but that lives inside the Universe of Lovecraft. The first adventure of this character is dated in 1934, months after Hitler's rise to power. In this story the Nazis play an important role.
The Thule Society. The Vrils. The Occultist Section of the III Reich.
Set in Transylvania, Romania, Sandra Munt is looking for the Dagger of Kenhotep, a creature invoked by a pre-egipt king named Nefren-Ka, with the help of the legendary Al-Azif (know as Necronomicon). But the Nazis and the misterious Thule Society are also looking for it. Sandra Munt will fight against time to get the dagger and save her life. And she only counts with the support of the photographer Laura Ruiz, stuck accidentaly in the middle of the battle.
This segment (as the previous one) will be shoot in Spain and in Spanish. The cast is international, though, so they will speak their own languages in several occasions. It will be subtitled in every country.

SO WE NEED THE CONTRIBUTIONS?
The 80% of the budget has been provided privately and used during most of the pre-production. We only have left the shooting expenses: acommodation, catering, travelling and part of the sound and image post-production.
"Sandra Munt and the dagger of Kenotep" is the first adventure of this character. And it won't be the only one. The characters "live" beyond the film: a comic book that is the prequel of this story, the art book or the documentary-Making of. All this stuff is offered to the contributors of the creation of the film. A full-blown multimedia project.
WOULD THAT GIVE IN RETURN?
