Necoechea will produce Valdez adaptation

MEXICO CITY — Mexican helmer Arturo Ripstein will begin shooting “El carnaval de Sodoma” on Aug. 22.

Produced by Miguel Necoechea (“Innocent Voices”) with Spain’s Morena Films and funds from Imcine, Mexico’s government film commission, $1.3 million pic is based on the novel by Dominican writer Pedro Antonio Valdez and adapted by Ripstein’s wife, Paz Alicia Garciadiego.
