Ventana Sur Registers Further Consolidation

6 December 2014 9:59 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Buenos Aires –Film Factory’s “Spanish Affair,” FilmSharks’ “Americano 3D,” Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s “Scherzo Diabolico” and Rhayuela’s “Alias Maria” were four of a large litany of titles that saw some business at a robust sixth Ventana Sur, which once more witnessed now-hallmark growth: new sections, such as a European Day and transmedia showcase Interactuar; the mass support of the Latin American and international genre community for Ventana Sur’s genre mart Blood Window; a Thierry Fremaux master class; and two big Spanish-language production-distribution announcements: on Daniel Calparsoro’s “No Crook, No Crime” and Pablo Trapero’s “The Clan.”

Delivered to a Sro crowd, Fremaux’s master class formed part of a renamed Cannes Festival Film Week, which saw some of the biggest titles at Cannes – “Winter Sleep” and ”Mommy,” for instance – unspool in Buenos Aires at Fremaux-hosted presentations.

Now a fixture, and Latin America’s prime film market, »

K & S Films, Matanza, El Deseo, Fox, Telefe Team on Pablo Trapero’s ‘The Clan’ (Exclusive)

4 December 2014 7:36 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Buenos Aires — Argentina’s K & S Films and Matanza Cine, Pedro and Agustin Almodovar’s El Deseo, Fox Intl. Productions (Fip) and Argentine broadcaster Telefe are teaming to finance and produce one of the most awaited of upcoming titles from Latin America: Pablo Trapero’s next film, “The Clan.”

20th Century Fox will distribute “The Clan” in Latin America.

Now shooting in a leafy, affluent northern suburb of Buenos Aires, “The Clan,” a ‘80s-set, noir thriller with elements of melodrama, centers on the celebrated real-life case of Argentina’s Clan Puccio, a well-off Buenos Aires family that kidnapped people from their neighborhood or nearby rugby club, collected ransoms and then murdered the victims in order to avoid detection.

Copying methods used by Argentine’s Junta military dictatorship during its Dirty War, the Puccio, whose son played rugby for Argentina’s Pumas, effectively privatized murder, turning it into a business. As a front, »

Thierry Fremaux gives masterclass

2 December 2014 1:47 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Cannes Film Festival chief Thierry Fremaux spoke of his “special love” for Argentina, proposed a ban on selfies on the red carpet and called for a relaxing of distribution windows in a masterclass at Ventana Sur on December 2.

In a wide-ranging session that looked back over his first 13 years in the job and addressed the impact of digital cinema on selection policy, Fremaux said the rise in number of Latin American entries coincided with his start on the job.

“When I first arrived [in 2001, after he was hired by Cannes president Gilles Jacob] I was afraid of being biased but it was by coincidence that I arrived at the same time of the new generation of filmmakers in Argentina,” he said.

“We have received so many Argentinian and Mexican films over recent years. This is a community with a lot of vitality.”

Rodrigo Santoro Helps Take Latinos Into the Mainstream (Exclusive)

9 October 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rio De Janeiro — One of Latin America’s highest-profile actors in Hollywood and beyond, Brazil’s Rodrigo Santoro, a memorable Xerxes in “30,” has hardly stopped.

But the parts he’s played of late not only underscore the illustrious thesping company he keeps, but just how far Latinos have come in sloughing off Latino type-casting.

Santoro wrapped two weeks ago his first TV series, playing an outlaw on the pilot for HBO’s “Westworld,” helmed by Jonathan Nolan for Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV, and a series inspired in concept by the Yul Brynner movie classic.

He features in Steven Bernstein’s “brilliantly written” “Dominion,” produced by Richard Gladstein, with Rhys Ifans as Welsh bard Dylan Thomas, living out his last day on earth, and John Malkovich as his doctor, shot over the summer in Montreal. Santoro plays “a mysterious character who will reveal himself.” Santoro’s character is called Carlos, »

Un Certain Regard Prizes Unveiled at Cannes

23 May 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Hungarian director Kornel Mondruczo's film centering on an uprising of dogs, "White God," has nabbed the top prize in Cannes' Un Certain Regard section. Meanwhile, the Jury Prize went to Ruben Ostlund's "Turist," on the fallout (no pun intended) felt by one family after an avalanche; and the Jury's Special Prize to Wim Wenders and Juliano Ribeiro Salgado's co-directed documentary "Salt of the Earth," a portrait of photographer Sebastiao Selgado (father of Ribeiro Salgado).  Acting awards were handed out to Aboriginal thespian David Gulpilil (who began his career as the young walkabout of the title in Nicolas Roeg's 1971 classic) for Rolf de Heer's "Charlie's Country," which functions as a semi-autobiographical drama about its star; while the ensemble award went to the sidebar's opener, "Party Girl," by Marie Amachoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis, following an aging woman's switch from club life to married life.

Focusing on a dog who organizes the strays and mutts of Budapest to rebel and turn on their masters, Hungarian director Kornel Mundruczo's film won raves for the way it uses what could be a horror-movie scenario to create a potent metaphor for class oppression.

Cannes: ‘White God’ Wins Un Certain Regard Prize

23 May 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cannes — “White God,” Hungarian helmer Kornel Mundruczo’s audacious drama about how a young girl’s separation from her dog leads to a full-blown canine uprising, won the Un Certain Regard Prize at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday.

Although Mundruczo was previously in competition at Cannes with 2008′s “Delta” and 2010′s “Tender Son: The Frankenstein Project,” this marks the first time he has won a prize at the festival. The Match Factory is handling international sales on “White God,” a Hungarian-German-Swedish co-production.

The jury prize was given to “Force majeure,” Scandinavian helmer Ruben Ostlund’s sharply comic tale of a family weathering a crisis while on vacation at a ski lodge. One of the most roundly acclaimed titles in Un Certain Regard, or indeed the festival overall, the film is being sold internationally by the Coproduction Office. Like Mundruczo, Ostlund is making his third appearance at Cannes, having previously »

Cannes First Look: Lisandro Alonso's 'Jauja,' Starring Viggo Mortensen as a Father in Peril

8 May 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Argentine filmmaker Lisandro Alonso was last seen at Cannes in 2008 with his drama about a sailor, "Liverpool." He's exploring the natural world yet again in "Jauja," the Un Certain Regard entry starring Viggo Mortensen as a father who treks with his daughter from Denmark to an uncharted desert in South America. Costarring Ghita Norby, "Jauja" is cowritten by Alonso and first-time scribe Fabian Casas, and this is Alonso's first narrative feature since "Liverpool." He made an international splash in 2004 with "Los Muertos," another mystery that turned on the relationship between father and daughter. Take a look at images from the set of "Jauja" below, and Indiewire has an exclusive on the beautiful new poster here. The film will compete for the Un Certain Regard prize, under Argentinian jury president Pablo Trapero. »

Light emerging from the shadows: Sos staff members share their thoughts on noir

2 May 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Film noir. What is it? What are its defining characteristics? What films best express its qualities? Sex appeal, violence, cynicism, anti-heroes, femmes fatales, bleak commentary on modern society, maddening twists of fate that perpetuate one’s misery, running away from danger yet never making any ground…noir is and represents a wide variety of things, so much so that film experts do not even agree on whether it is a genre unto itself. (Two of the leading voices, James Ursini and Alain Silver, agree that it represents a movement rather than a definable genre.) For well over two years now, Sound on Sight has hosted the Friday Noir column which, on a near-weekly basis,  has covered a great many noir entries of the commonly recognized classic period (1941 to 1959) as well as sizable portion of neo-noirs. Slowly and steadily, the column has explored the extremely exhaustive catalogue of titles with still many to come. »

‘Fifi,’ ‘Bug,’ ‘Manakamana’ Win at Buenos Aires’ Bafici

13 April 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Mitra Farahani’s portrait of Iranian artist Bahamn Mohasses, “Fifi Howls With Happiness” topped the International Competition at the 16th Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival (Bafici), which wrapped Sunday.

Distinguished with a wealth of local movies, however small, including a clutch of new titles, some popular though they didn’t end up in with a prize, and an international competition packed with gems, beginning with its best picture winner, the 16th Bafici looks set to go down a strong edition.

“Fifi” delivers a bracing portrait of Iranian artist Bahman Mohasses, and the vastly contrarian and contradictory nature of creative genius at large, presenting at once a caustic, dogmatic, seeringly mordant interviewee who has destroyed many of his paintings and shunned the limelight, but is still concerned about how the world views him and is finally persuaded to paint again.
