Breaking Glass Acquires U.S. Rights to Colombian Oscar Submission ‘Guilty Men’ (Exclusive)
Breaking Glass Pictures, founded in 2009 by industry veterans Richard Wolff and Richard Ross, has announced the acquisition of the Colombian Academy Award submission “Guilty Men,” which swept Colombia’s Macondo Awards last December.

The deal was negotiated by Breaking Glass’ CEO Richard Wolfe and Films Boutique’s Jean-Christophe Simon.

Sharing the signature trait of many of Colombia’s best-known films, most famously 1998’s Palme d’Or nominee “The Rose Seller,” “Guilty Men” was shot using all non-professional, local actors.

Variety’s Jay Weissberg reviewed the film saying: “’Guilty Men’ mines a great deal of its power from a precocious visual language that contrasts sunshine with darkness for added effect,” and gave credit to first-time director Iván D. Gaona: “He’s done an impressive job working with the amateur actors.”

The film world premiered at Venice Days, and held its North American premiere at Toronto. Since then it has participated in a host of international festivals such as

  • DailyDead
Cavitycolors pays tribute to Maniac Cop 2 with a new shirts and pins collection, and in today's Horror Highlights, we also have details on Aliens Ate My Homework, What the Waters Left Behind, and The Tormenting.

Maniac Cop 2 Shirts and Pins Collection: From Cavitycolors: "Hey Fiends!

Sanfic: Fernando Guzzoni Prepares First English-Language Feature (Exclusive)

Chilean filmmaker Fernando Guzzoni, whose critically lauded father-son drama “Jesus” bows Sept. 1 in the U.S. via Breaking Glass, is developing his first English-language pic for Focus Features.

“We’ve been in talks since Toronto [where “Jesus” had its world premiere] where they asked me to present them a project,” said Guzzoni.

Titled “People Still Die of Love,” the romantic drama is a “reflection on the crisis of modern love, where relationships are often fleeting,” but tinged with dark humor, said Guzzoni. He has written a first draft in Spanish, which he’ll later write in English, he said.

Since it has an urban setting, he’s hoping to shoot in New York or Los Angeles, or possibly the U.K.

Guzzoni is closing co-production deals for his third feature, “Blanca,” with Argentina’s Ivan Granovsky and Marion Klotz of Autocroma boarding the project. He’s also in talks with potential co-producers from France, Germany, Mexico and the U.S.
