International Star You Should Know: Colombian Actor-Director Victor Mallarino

20 November 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Colombia’s Victor Mallarino has been acting since he was 5, and by 6, he was studying theater. At 13, he starred in sitcom “En Casa de Mama Leonor.” But performing was in his blood: Mallarino’s father, also called Victor, was an early director of the National School of Dramatic Arts, and at Colombia’s prestigious Teatro Colon.

Idol Chatter: Mallarino’s role models when he was growing up were Sanford Meisner for his interpretation of Method acting, Brit theater director Peter Brook and writer-director Clive Barker. His film directing idols include Leigh, Altman, Hitchcock and Fellini. He was able to meld both acting and directing himself in 2007 TV series “Amas de Casa Desesperadas” — in which he performed in and helmed nearly every episode.

Direct Line: Despite his earliest roots in acting, Mallarino, 58, prefers to direct. He recently co-helmed 80 episodes of biomusical “Celia,” about Cuban salsa diva Celia Cruz, for Fox TeleColombia. »

Berlin: ‘Night’ Producer Mediapro Launches Drama ‘The Mothers of Elna’ (Exclusive)

5 February 2015 10:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mediapro, the Spanish producer of Woody Allen, Roman Polanski as well as Berlin opener “Nobody Wants the Night” and competition player “The Pearl Necklace,” is selling one of its most ambitious projects yet: “The Mothers of Elna.”

Budgeted at €15 million-€20 million ($17 million-$23 million), and with financing in place, English-language “Mothers” will star four high-profile international actors, said Mediapro’s Jaume Roures, producer of “Nobody Wants the Night,” although he would not disclose names yet.

In an unusual reverse of most projects coming on to the market, its challenge is not to complete financing but to attach a first-class director, he added.

“Elna” is based on the true-life story of Swiss nurse Elisabeth Eidenbenz, who between 1939 and 1944 helped save the lives of 597 babies, many born to Republican women in squalid southern France internment camps after Spain’s Civil War.

Centering on four characters, a first draft screenplay of “Elna “ has been »
