Cannes: ’100 Meters’ Sells To Germany, Asia, Poland (Exclusive)

Barcelona– Co-produced by Barcelona’s Filmax International and Lisbon’s Mgn Filmes, “100 Meters” has been sold to Germany, Yugoslavia, and Hong-Kong, among other territories.

The story revolves around Ramón Sampedro (Javier Bardem), a middle-aged man who has been bed-ridden and dependent on the care of others since a diving accident in his early 20s.
