Reda Kateb met Ben Mendelsohn on the set of Ryan Gosling's sharp Lost River Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Wim Wenders has played a big part for Reda Kateb with films Paris, Texas, The State Of Things, Buena Vista Social Club, and The Soul Of A Man and he recently starred with Sophie Semin in Les Beaux Jours D'Aranjuez, based on a Peter Handke story and appears in Wim's latest, Submergence, starring James McAvoy and Alicia Vikander. Longtime Nick Cave collaborator Warren Ellis, who is featured in Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth's 20,000 Days On Earth and is the composer for Deniz Gamze Ergüven's Mustang, got involved with Étienne Comar's Django through Reda's film Pitchoune.

Cave and Ellis did work for David Oelhoffen's intimate Loin Des Hommes, in which Reda starred opposite Viggo Mortensen. His next film, Territoires, will be with Alice Winocour's Disorder star Matthias Schoenaerts, »

Broad Green Pictures Is Missing Release Dates and Angering Filmmakers. Here’s Why.

16 February 2017 4:13 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It was baffling when distributor Broad Green Pictures pulled Lucy Walker’s “Untitled Buena Vista Social Club Documentary” from the Sundance Film Festival on January 20, the same day as its intended premiere, with a press release that said the “post production process has taken longer than expected.”

Nearly a month later, Broad Green has made no further comment on the film’s status, but its homepage still boasts that “Lucy Walker’s Buena Vista Social Club documentary will have it’s [sic] official world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival!”

That disconnect (and typo) could be a matter of sloppy site maintenance, but multiple IndieWire interviews with people familiar with Walker’s film and Broad Green suggest more complex issues dog the three-year-old would-be studio. (Walker declined to comment for this article; Broad Green executives didn’t respond to requests for comment.)

Broad Green Pulls Buena Vista Social Club Doc From Sundance

20 January 2017 1:24 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Oscar nominee Lucy Walker’s forthcoming documentary about revolutionary musicians in Cuba has been abruptly pulled from the Sundance lineup. The untitled project was a pseudo-follow up to the hit Wim Wenders doc “Buena Vista Social Club” about the ensemble from 1999. Sundance officials announced the change early Friday morning, with the film’s distributor Broad Green following up with a statement about delayed post-production.

Untitled Buena Vista Social Club documentary pulled from Sundance

20 January 2017 8:52 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Lucy Walker’s documentary will not screen in Park City due to a longer than expected post-production and Friday’s world premiere has been scrapped.

Sundance staff were informed late on Thursday night and have replaced the Friday slot with An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power, which premiered on Thursday night.

“We at Broad Green are disappointed that we will not be able to premiere this compelling documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival,” a spokesperson for Broad Green said.

“The film’s post-production process has taken longer than expected and thus the decision was made to wait to introduce the film to audiences until it can be presented in its best possible iteration.”

A scheduled press screening on Friday night will be replaced with another title to be announced and the festival will do the same with subsequent slots as the event progresses.

Lucy Walker’s Buena Vista Social Club Documentary Pulled From Sundance

20 January 2017 8:10 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Sundance Film Festival announced Friday morning that filmmaker Lucy Walker’s “Untitled Buena Vista Social Club Documentary” would not premiere at the 2017 fest as previously announced. The Sundance Institute only learned that the film would not play late on Thursday.

“We at Broad Green are disappointed that we will not be able to premiere this compelling documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival,” Broad Green Pictures said in a statement. “The film’s post production process has taken longer than expected and thus the decision was made to wait to introduce the film to audiences until it can be presented in its best possible iteration.”

The film, which at one point carried the title “The Flowers of Life: Social Club Buena Vista,” revisited the Cuban band Buena Vista Social Club, also the subject of filmmaker Wim Wenders’ eponymous doc from 1999.

Untitled Buena Vista Social Club Documentary Pulled From Sundance Lineup

20 January 2017 8:06 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Untitled Buena Vista Social Club Documentary will not to premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, robbing the mountainside indie film gathering of one of its higher-profile debuts. Broad Green, the film’s distributor, attributed the last minute decision to pull the film to the need to make more post-production tweaks. It was originally slated to have its first public screenings on Friday, but Festival organizers said that they were informed Thursday that the picture would not be shown.

“We at Broad Green are disappointed that we will not be able to premiere this compelling documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival,” a spokesperson for Broad Green said in a statement. “The film’s post production process has taken longer than expected and thus the decision was made to wait to introduce the film to audiences until it can be presented in its best possible iteration.”
