Manhattan sets ’12 Hours’

Peurto Rican pic won Chicago audience award

Manhattan Pictures Intl. has picked up North American distribution rights to Puerto Rican production entity Muvi Films’ pic “12 Hours,” which was showcased at the Tribeca Film Festival. Spanish-language pic will be released Stateside in early March with English subtitles.

“Hours,” a box office hit in Puerto Rico, depicts 12 hours of San Juan’s nightlife via various characters — a gigolo, three co-workers on the prowl for men, a young woman out to lose her virginity, a TV reporter and a paternalistic cab driver.

“The release of ’12 Hours’ keeps us on track with Manhattan Pictures’ goal of fostering partnerships with established innovative auteurs such as Jean-Luc Godard, Michael Apted, Alan Rudolph and rising new talented auteurs such as (“12 Hours” writer-director) Raul-Marchand Sanchez,” said Manhattan Pics Intl. chairman Paul Cohen.

Pic won the Audience Choice Award at the Chicago Latino Film Fest.

Manhattan Pictures Intl. is also working with Muvi to secure a soundtrack partner for the film in the U.S. to accompany pic’s release. Muvi Film retains all international distribution rights to pic and soundtrack.
