Latido, K ‘Fire’ up Canada deal

Malaga mart fires up distribs

Spanish sales consortium Latido Films has inked with K Films Amerique for all Canadian rights on Argentine Tristan Bauer’s Falklands War drama “Iluminados por el fuego” (Blessed by Fire).

Turning on a 40-year-old Argentine whose memories of the war are triggered by the suicide of an ex-combatant, “Blessed” took the special jury prize at September’s San Sebastian Festival and won foreign Spanish-language film honors at Spain’s Goya Awards in January.

Deal was struck during the Malaga Market Screenings, which ran March 23-25, where Latido inked a swathe of deals:

  • Marcelo Pineyro’s satirical comedy “The Method” and Franco de la Pena’s prostitution drama “Justine, a Woman for Sale” were licensed to Action Films for Scandinavia.

  • “Blessed” was also sold to Greece’s Medial in a package including “The Method” and Moroccan film “Heaven’s Doors.”

  • Cinematografica Blancica took Venezuelan rights on this year’s Malaga Film Festival picture winner, Gerardo Herrero’s “Rough Winds”; Manuel Gutierrez Aragon’s “Virgin Rose”; Juan Carlos Cremata’s coming-of-ager “Viva Cuba”; and Eliseo Subiela’s comedy “Heartlift.”

  • Chile’s Los Filmes de la Arcadia bought drama “Cold Winter Sun.”

  • Horn Eng took all Taiwan and Hong Kong rights on “Viva Cuba.”
