Italy’s 39 Films, Argentina’s Jaque Content Join Brava Cine’s Doc Series ‘Mother Dough’

  • Variety
Italy’s 39 Films and Argentina-México-u.S.-based Jaque Content are joining forces with Buenos Aires’ Brava Cine to co-produce Mercedes Cordova’s ethno-gastronomy doc series “Masa madre” (“Mother Dough”).

Developed at Brava Cine, “Mother Dough” has been selected for pitching sessions and business meetings at Ventana Sur Market’s Fiction Factory sidebar, after winning last year a development contest launched by Argentina’s Incaa film-TV agency.

In mid-November, the project snagged the Ctt Exp & Rentals Award for series in development from Los Cabos Festival’s Gabriel Figueroa Film Fund.

A four-episode series, “Mother Dough” explores the role of women through their work at home and their dough, showing the use of wheat and bread in Europe but also corn -tortillas- and arepas in North and Central America, and potatoes in the Andes.

The series reveals a strong commitment to both feminism and gastronomy, a powerful combination these days.
