Tapping into int’l interest

Pic slate includes 'Arcangel,' 'Manana'

MADRID — Altair Cinema, a new Spanish-Argentine production company, is ready to tap into growing international interest in Argentine movies with two pics that are finishing post-production.

Created in early 2002, Altair is a joint venture of Spanish-Argentine distribution and sales house Aldebaran Film & Arts and Argentine producer Fernando Sokolowicz.

Their goal is to co-produce three to four movies a year with other European and Latin-American companies. Altair also hopes to take advantage of bargain-basement opportunities for production in Argentina, where prices have plunged more than 50% in the last two years.

Leading Altair’s first slate is “El septimo arcangel,” starring Pablo Echarri (“Plata quemada”) and helmed by Juan Bautista Stagnaro (“La Furia”). Co-produced by Argentina’s Jorge Polleri, the Buenos Aires-shot drama-thriller has finished post-production.

Second pic is “Hoy y manana,” a meller co-produced by Cinema Digital Argentina and Spain’s Bulbeck & Mas. Debut feature from Alejandro Chomski is in post.

“As Argentina confronts a deep (economic) crisis, we are taking advantage of its locations, technical services and above-the-line talent ,” says Altair general manager Sokolowicz.
