Cannes: Outsider, Strand Take U.S. On ‘Nise’ (Exclusive)

15 May 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A Tokyo Fest Grand Prix winner, Roberto Berliner’s “Nise: The Heart of Madness” has been co-acquired for U.S. distribution by Outsider Pictures and Strand Releasing. Outsider and Canada’s Az Films have also picked up Canadian rights. In a separate deal, Digital Works will release “Nise” in Japan.

Gloria Pires, a famed Brazilian Globo telenovela and film actress, stars as Dr. Nise da Silveira,  jailed for six years as an alleged communist, who took over the occupational therapy wing at a hospital in Brazil in the ‘40s, treating schizophrenics, and rejecting traditional electro-shock treatment in favor of painting and giving patients street dogs. Patients’ paintings  influenced modern art in Brazil.

Gloria Pires is amazing as Nise. It’s one of those films that as soon as it’s over, you want to know more about the work she did and what happened to her patients,” said Hudson.

Fox+ Premium Package Launches in Brazil With ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Homeland’

Global hit series “Homeland,” “The Walking Dead,” “Da Vinci’s Demons,” “Vikings” and “Black Sails” have landed in Brazil via Fox Networks’ newly launched HD premium package Fox+, comprised of Fox1 and Fox Action channels.

Fox’s original Brazilian productions “Um Contra Todos,” “#MeChamaDeBruna – A História de Bruna Surfistinha” and co-production “Condominio Jaqueline” join the lineup of the new exclusive channel package.

“We make at least three original productions or co-productions a year to comply with Brazil’s audiovisual law,” said Fox Networks Group president Carlos Martinez.

While in the rest of Latin America, Fox+ includes feature films, the Brazilian Fox+ package offers only series because of Fox’s partial stake in Telecine Networks Brazil, to which it supplies its feature films.

“We launched Fox+ in Brazil because it leads in the piracy of series in Latin America; people have had no access to these shows in any other way until now, »
