Outsider, Strand Releasing Acquire U.S. on ’Tales From Mexico’ (Exclusive)

21 May 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Outsider Pictures, with Strand Releasing, has acquired U.S. rights to “Tales From Mexico,” an eight-part anthology of Mexico’s historical challenges, joys and hope for renewal. 

The pick-up comes as Paul Hudson’s Outsider drives into world sales on Latino titles, acquiring Spaniard Miguel del Arco’s “The Furies,” Mattias Lucchesi’s “El Pampero” and Sebastian Hiriart’s “Carroña,” tapping into a young generation of producers and directors from Mexico, Argentina and Spain. 

In early sales, Versus Entertainment has taken Spain, and Az Films closed Canada on “Mexico.”

Produced by Machete Producciones (“Leap Year,” “La jaula de oro”), “Tales From Mexico” is directed by established Mexican talent — Carlos Carrera — plus new voices: Ernesto Contreras (Sundance winner “I Dream in Another Language”) and Natalia Beristain (“The Goodbyes”). The omnibus unspools in the same room starting in 1910, from the Revolution to modern times. Violence and frustration thread many episodes.

A mini-series that parodies 80’s southern Wrestling, “Southpaw Regional Wrestling” is a low budget wrestling show set in February 1987 featuring current WWE superstars playing 80’s wrestling stereotypes building up to the PPV “Lethal Leap year.”

The original WWE four-part miniseries introduces itself by claiming to be footage from a video cassette discovered in the WWE archives of a “renegade promotion” called Southpaw Regional Wrestling. Cena stars as Lance Catamaran, a wrestling announcer in the vein of Ron Burgandy who repeatedly hints at an impending emotional collapse.

Celebrating Irishness at the Movies

16 March 2017 9:22 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

And look at that, not a leprechaun in sight.

For a relatively small island with a tiny film industry, Ireland certainly gets a lot of representation in movies — sometimes via other places masquerading as Ireland, other times by representing other places (the beach landing scene in Saving Private Ryan was shot in Wexford, for example) or worlds (Ahch-To in The Force Awakens), and occasionally it even gets to play itself. The island also exports a rather impressive number of cinematic talents considering the fact that, though every third or forth person you meet on the street in, say, Boston or Chicago (a lot of places, really) will claim Irish heritage, the Republic of Ireland has a population of slightly less than 4.6 million and Northern Ireland slightly more than 1.8 million, bringing the island to a total of only around 6.4 million. In other words, still around 2 million less than before the Famine, over »

Guadalajara: ‘Acapulco Golden,’ ‘Nudo Mixteco’ Top Co-Production Meeting

15 March 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Guadalajara — “Acapulco Golden” and “Nudo Mixteco,” two compelling narratives which say much about the shifting gains and roiling challenges of empowerment in a troubled Latin American world took major and multiple plaudits at the 13th Guadalajara C0-Production Meeting, one of the region’s longest-established industry events.

The near explosion of prize-giving companies at the event meant that a slew of other feature projects also reaped awards, consisting of multifarious development, production and post-production services from companies in Mexico, the U.S., Colombia and Chile.

No film won more prizes on Tuesday night in Guadalajara than “Acapulco Golden,” from Pablo Delgado, whose debut “The Tears,” established him as an artfilm auteur to track. One of three awards was from Epigmenio Ibarra’s Argos, consisting of production or post-production services to the value of Pesos 500,000 to Pesos 3 million ($25,000 to $154,000). Della’s second feature, “Acapulco Golden” also won 80 hours of color correction »

Guadalajara: ’Cordillera,’ ‘Nudo Mixteco,’ ’White Devil’ at Co-Production Meeting

Guadalajara, Mexico — Chilean Patricio Guzman’s “Cordillera,” Dolores Fonzi-starrer “The White Devil” and “Nudo Mixteco,” a women’s drama produced by Lucia Carreras, are among projects to be pitched at an expanded 13th Guadalajara Co-Production Meeting, which runs March 12-14 at the Mexican Festival.

Produced by Chile’s Alexandra Galvis and Renate Sachse in Paris and directed by Guzman, the doyen of Latin American documentary filmmakers, “Cordillera” marks the final part of a documentary trilogy begun by 2010’s “Nostalgia For the Light” and continued with “The Pearl Button,” a best screenplay winner at the 2015 Berlin Festival.

In it, Guzman sets out to explore the Andes, a “wall which separates us [Chileans] from the world” and a mountain range which “contains the history of all mankind,” Guzman has said.

A fiction feature, “Nudo Mixteco” turns on immigration and, above all three indigenous women’s doubts and fears as they battle for »
