Golem takes Spain rights to ‘Moon’

Distrib also adds 'Life,' 'Venus' to slate

MADRID — Spain’s Golem Distribucion has acquired all Spanish rights to Bahman Ghobadi’s Kurdish road movie “Half Moon.” Pic shared the top Golden Shell at the 54th San Sebastian Intl. Film Festival, which wrapped Saturday.

Deal was closed at San Sebastian fest by Golem general manager Pedro Zaratiegui and Michael Weber from Germany sales company the Match Factory.

Co-produced by Paris-based Silkroad production, Vienna’s New Crowned Hope and the Kurdistan Regional Government of Iraq, “Moon” tells the story of Mamo, a renowned musician who, after waiting 35 years, finally receives permission to give a concert in Iraqi Kurdistan.

Golem, one of Spain’s top arthouse distribs as well as an exhibitor and producer, also added to its distrib slate at Toronto, buying Jia Zhangke’s Venice Golden Lion winner “Still Life,” sold by Paris-based sales agent Memento Films, and the Peter O’Toole and Vanessa Redgrave-toplining drama “Venus,” from the Works Intl.
