F for Film sets sales for ‘Los Muertos’

'Libertad' helmer makes second Cannes appearance

French international sales company F for Film has sold Argentine drama “Los Muertos” to Portugal’s Atalanta and France’s ID Distribution. Sales are pending with Italy, Switzerland and Belgium.

Directed by Lisandro Alonso, the $600,000 pic premiered Friday in the Directors Fortnight sidebar.

“Los Muertos” was co-produced by 4L (Argentina), Slot Machine (France) and Fortuna Films (Holland). It’s Alonso’s second pic in Cannes, following 2000’s Certain Regard unspooling of his debut feature “La Libertad.”

“Los Muertos” follows a former prison inmate who crosses great distances to find his adult daughter.

As a producer, F for Film has joined with Kassander Films, which produces Wim Wenders’ pics, and Germany’s Jotta Media on “Canard Ville.” The e4.5 million road movie/thriller will shoot in various European coastal towns, according to F for Film acquisitions and sales manager Margarita Seguy.

The company also is co-producing “Knockout,” a boxing documentary based in Cuba, directed by Switzerland’s Stefano Knuchel and Ivan Nurches.

“Los Muertos” is the second Argentine pickup for F for Film, which also has sold “La cruz del sur” and Brazil’s “Sete cabecas.”
