Making its first-ever Spanish pick-up, France’s Snd-M6 Group has pounced on world sales rights to “Vulcania,” a sci-fi thriller-drama produced by two associate production companies of Peter Aalbaek Jensen and Lars von Trier’s Zentropa: Zentropa Spain and Zentropa Sweden. Ran Ent. co-produces out of France.
Snd has also taken French distribution rights to “Vulacania.” Nordisk has tied down rights to Scandinavia. Alfa Pictures will release “Vulcania” in Spain.
The feature debut of Jose Skaf, part of Spain’s seemingly bottomless auteur genre talent pool, “Vulcania” is set in a small place lost in space and time, where there is no other option but to obey the village leaders.
It stars two of Spain’s fastest-rising thesps, Miquel Fernandez (“The End”) as Jonas, who always played by the rules, and Aura Garrido as Marta, a young woman who makes him question the system and realize they have been fed a lie. »

"Given the choice between no music so we can release the DVD, I'd choose the music," said Caroline Chikezie (Sasha). "They used to say the music was the seventh cast member, it was so important. It just took it to a whole new level. I guess it's worth not having a DVD release just to keep the music."
