New Exciting Project from L. Gustavo Cooper

November 1, 2012

From the maker of award-winner zombie short film Velvet Road, L. Gustavo Cooper, comes a film slated to be released in 2013: Copiii Pierdere. If you’ve been one of the lucky ones to see Velvet Road, you know that Cooper is one of the most talented young filmmakers around, and it’s exciting to see him hard at work.

Follow Copiii Pierdere on Twitter to keep up with the latest news.

From the official website:

The film is based on a Romanian folklore that dates back to the 1500s. It was used by parents as a way to keep children from sneaking out or acting up. The story itself is about a gypsy woman named Alina Patkavior who was the victim of a brutal rape. The act drove her insane, forcing her to attempt to take her own life. When the woman was ready to commit suicide, a vengeance demon appeared. The demon told her that he would wipe away her pain by giving these men the truly horrible fate they deserved. In return, he would return to claim her child after one year. A year later, Alina had grown to love and care for the child. When the vengeance demon returned to claim her child’s life, she double-crossed him by refusing to turn the child over. The demon cursed Alina and her people, making it impossible for them to bear children. The group of gypsies came to be known as Copiii Pierdere, meaning ‘the loss of a child’ or ‘lost children’ in Romanian. When Alina’s child became a man and married, he wanted desperately to be a father. The man summoned the same demon that his mother betrayed, in attempts to make amends and lift the curse. The demon told him that while he would not lift the curse, there was a way he could still raise children of his own. The only way he or any member of the Copiii Pierere could have children was to shed blood in the demon’s name, in the form of a cursed ritual. This ritual was named Din Burta de Sarpe, Romanian for “belly of a snake”. The first time the man performed the ritual, he was horrified to find that it drove a loving couple of villagers insane to the point of death, leaving the unborn child unharmed beside their corpses. Disgusted as he was at his own actions, he took the infant and raised it as his own, and passed this gruesome act through his family’s bloodline. This year will be the 500 year anniversary of the creation of Copiii Pierdere, and the Din Burta de Sarpe. Some believe that their power is growing stronger because of this occasion.
