Director-sibling duo Fiona Nova and Pier Paolo Piccoli Jr. launched a Kickstarter this month for their next 20-minute Je T’aime, Julie. Described as “an unconventional love story between Julie and Manon in the late 17th century Versailles,” this film will shoot on location in France and will be loosely be based on one of the most scandalous women in the French court. In addition to Kickstarter backers, iFilmFrance will produce, with Joe Simon coming on as the cinematographer and director of photography. With a current goal of at least $ 95,000, the Kickstarter says,

JE T’AIME, JULIE is an action, psychological, dramatic short film based on the real-life chronicles of Julie d’Aubigny. Set in the south of France during the late 17th Century, the story follows our protagonist, Julie, a strong-willed 18-year-old woman who has forcefully been separated from the love of her life, Manon. This period piece explores Julie’s character and what she’s willing to do to be reunited with her lover, who is now a novice at a convent.
