19 April 2016 4:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lleida – One of the two major winners at Mexico’s 2015 Guadalajara Festival, Celso García’s debut “The Thin Yellow Line” scooped both Best Feature and the Audience Award at the 22nd Lleida Catalonia Latin America Festival.

“Line” is sold by Madrid-based Latido Films, which informed Variety that they’re near to closing negotiations for a U.S. distribution deal and other sales pacts in Latin America.

Mentored and produced by Guillermo del Toro and his partner at Mexico’s Tequila Gang, Bertha Navarro, as well as Alejandro Springall, Celso Garcia’s double win in Spain adds to a slew of some 20 fest plaudits including the Jury Prize and Audience Award for best Mexican feature at Mexico’s 2015 Guadalajara fest, best screenplay and Jury Award at Spain’s Gijón Fest, and Glauber Rocha and Bronze Zenith kudos at Montreal.

Starring Damián Alcazar, Joaquín Cosío, Silveiro Palacios, Gustavo Sánchez Parra, Fernando Becerril and newcomer Américo Hollande, »

Jalisco Up Next! — Celso García to Caress ‘Velvet’

10 March 2016 6:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On-the-rise Mexican helmer Celso Garcia is prepping “Velvet,” his follow-up to “The Thin Yellow Line,” produced by Guillermo Del Toro and Bertha Navarro, Del Toro’s partner at Mexco’s Tequila Gang, as well as Alejandro Springall.

“Velvet” is inspired by the life of Mexican Julia Pastrana, who was born in 1834 with a rare illness, hypertrichosis — popularly known as “werewolf syndrome” — consisting of  abnormal, disproportionate hair growth over the entire body. No taller than five feet, Pastrana was called “the ugliest woman in the world,” traveled as a freak attraction throughout the U.S., and had a “tragic, intense and exciting life,” in García’s words.

“Velvet” will be structured as a Mexican-u.S. co-production, international talent, per Garcia. To be released in Mexico on July 1, “Line’s” international sales are handled by Madrid-based Latido Films.

“Line” took the Ibero-American feature Jury Prize and Audience Award for a Mexican feature at Mexico’s 2015 Guadalajara Fest. »
