La Marea

New distribution pick-up

Films Distribution has added yet another Rotterdam title to its ever-growing slate with the acquisition of international sales rights to Diego Martinez Vignatti’s Tiger competitor LA MAREA (TIDES). The film receives its world premiere on Monday. The Paris-based sales agent made the acquisition even before a final cut of the film was delivered by the director, who was still mixing sound on the film last week.The other Films Distribution showing at this year’s IFFR are Claire Simon’s ÇA BRÛLE (ON FIRE), Barbara Albert’s FALLING (FALLEN), Pablo Trapero’s NACIDO Y CRIADO (BORN AND BRED) and Joachim Lafosse’s NUE-PROPRIÉTÉ (PRIVATE PROPERTY).
