HOLLYWOOD — Capitol Films has nabbed international sales rights to Mexican-U.K. political thriller “Rabbit on the Moon.”

Pic, written, helmed and co-produced by Mexican director Jorge Ramirez-Suarez, will unspool at the Berlinale Special sidebar.

Capitol will manage all international sales with the exception of Mexico and the U.S.

William Morris Independent handles domestic sales. The William Morris agency signed on Ramirez-Suarez in November after his pic screened at the AFI fest and AFM in Los Angeles. Indie distrib Gussi Films released the $2.5 million pic in Mexico late last year to critical acclaim.

Thriller tracks an English woman, played by U.K. thesp Lorraine Polkington, whose idyllic life is shattered when her husband (Mexico’s Bruno Bichir) is framed for murder and she and her baby are kidnapped by the Mexican police. Pic also features Jesus Ochoa, Adam Kotz and Alvaro Guerrero (“Amores Perros”).

Ramirez-Suarez and Bichir will attend the Berlin Film Festival along with pic’s U.K. co-producer Phil Hunt of Head Gear.
