Priming its slate for Cannes, Kevin Williams Associates has taken international sales rights on “El crimen de una novia” (The Crime of a Bride) and “Ellos robaron la picha de Hitler” (They Stole Hitler’s Dick) from Spanish production house Telespan 2000. Both preem internationally at next month’s Cannes Film Festival market.
Docudrama “Crime” turns on actress Maria Botto researching her role in a Spanish dance version of Federico Garcia Lorca’s play “Blood Wedding.” “Stole,” a gross-out comedy helmed by Pedro Temboury, kicks off in Berlin 2006, when builders discover Adolf Hitler’s secret bunker and inside, his incorrupt penis, guarded by Eva Braun’s corpse. “Stole” won the Zonazine sidebar audience award at March’s Malaga Spanish Film Festival.
KWA will screen another five pics at Cannes. Standouts include grisly psycho thriller “H6 — Diary of a Serial Killer”; Alejandro Saderman’s tango tribute “El ultimo bandoneon”; and “Tattooed” from Argentina’s Eduardo Raspo, which won best film at the Biarritz and Trieste Latin American fests and best script at the New Montreal FilmFest.
