– Distinguished works in the agent’s lineup are DuduAnd metronomAnd the worst And my fairy In the official selection, Herkes In two weeks for directors, and la guria In Critics’ Week
Dudu by Panos H Koutras
The Marché du Film at the 75th Cannes Film Festival (May 17-25) promises to be particularly frenetic for the French sales agency Pyramide International (directed by Eric Lajes and direct it Agathe Moruk) who will pin their hopes on six titles that are on display at several exhibitions in Cannes, including four in the official selection.
We found stealing focus on Cannes Premier’s agenda Dudu by greek director Banos H Cotras (previous author, Zinnia [+see also:
interview: Panos H. Koutras
film profile], in the 2014 Un Certain Regard section), a comedy that takes us through the doors of a luxury villa near Athens belonging to Mariella and Pavlos, a couple on the verge of bankruptcy preparing to celebrate the marriage of their daughter Sophia to a wealthy heir. At this point, the dodo appears – a bird that has been extinct for 300 years – and leads all the heroes of the film in a crazy dance. The situation soon spirals out of control… Production comes from the Greek film company 100% Synthetic Films and the French company MPM Film, along with the Belgian company Tarantula.
Pyramide International will also negotiate on behalf of the first two feature films selected for the Un Certain Regard group: metronom from Romania Alexandru BelekAnd the worst by French directors Liz Akoka And roman gerrit.
Last but not least, my fairy By the multi-award winning Chilean documentary filmmaker Patricio Guzman (Production directed by French Atacama in co-production with Arte France and Market Chile) will be subjected to an official selection screening. The director presents the following joke: “October 2019: an unexpected revolution, a social explosion. One and a half million people demonstrated in the streets of Santiago for greater democracy, a more dignified life, better education, a better health system, a better health system. A new constitution. Chile regained its memory.” The event I had been waiting for since the student struggle in 1973 had finally come true.
Likewise, standing tall on the sales agent’s film list is a very tempting title chosen for two weeks of directors: Herkes by French director Philip Faucon (Al-Akhbar), which delves into the Algerian war and is produced by Istiklal Films and Arte France Cinemas, jointly with the Belgian company Films du Fleuve.
The sixth trump card of Pyramide International to honor the Cannes Fair la guria from Colombia Andres Ramirez PulidoWhich is scheduled to be revealed in competition during Critics Week. Produced by Colombian Valente Gracia and French costume Alta Rocca Films in co-production with Micro Climat Studios, this first feature film is about country boy Elich who is locked up in a young offending institution, in the heart of the Colombian rainforest, for a crime he committed with his friend Almono. Every day, the teens do hard manual labor and endure intense group therapy under the dangerous gaze of camp bouncer Godoy. But one day, El Mono is moved to the same center, bringing with him the past that Eliu is trying to escape.
The Marché du Film will also see Pyramide International continue pre-sale for a range of seven titles in post-production: le lisin by Christophe Honoré (Article – Championship Paul KircherAnd Vincent Lacoste And Juliette Binoche in leadership roles), The happiest man in the world from Macedonia Teona Strogar Mitivska (news), Sixth child by Leopold Legrand (article – commodity), Three nights a week by Florent Guillot (article – commodity), time out from Belgium Eve Duchemin (Article – Championship cream for chloe sincere), Avant l’effondrement by Alice and Benoit Zeniter (Article – especially starring Niels SchneiderAnd Aryan must And Suhaila Yaqoub) And hit the sun by Philip Petti (News – Championship Swan Arloud in the foreground).
Last but not least, the scheduled market offers of French production I love Greece by Nafsika Guerry-Karamaounas (championship Stacy Martin And Vincent Didin As a married couple living an eventful vacation on a small island in the Cyclades) and Michel Leclerc‘s not my type.
