Primer Plano Takes Worldwide Rights to Thriller ‘Witness’ (Exclusive)

4 December 2014 2:01 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pascual Condito’s sales-distribution company, the Primer Plano Film Group, has taken worldwide distribution rights to Argentine Santiago Fernandez’s psychological thriller “Intimate Witness.”

Playing in Ventana Sur as one of the six titles at Blood Window’s 2nd Bloody Works in Progress, “Witness” is produced by Buenos Aires-based Magma Cine and Mexico’s Nimbus Comunicacion, in what looks likely to be a growing axis between South America and Mexico.

Pic has covered approximately 85% of its $700,000 total budget, financed with distribution advances, prodcos’ own funds, plus public subsidies through Argentina’s Incaa film institute, said  producer Juan Pablo Gugliotta, at Buenos Aires’ Magma Cine, also the lead-producer on Pablo Fendrik’s Participant PanAmerica-backed “El Ardor.”

Fernandez established himself as a scribe-turned-helmer to track after helming chiller “The Second Death,” which Paris-based Reel Suspects sold to Germany, Japan, Spain and a bevy of Latin American territories led by Mexico.
