MADRID — Spanish distributor Baditri has acquired all Spanish rights to French mockumentary “Dans la peau de Jacques Chirac” (“Being Jacques Chirac”).
Pic was bought from French sales agent Rezo Films Intl. Helmed by Karl Zero and Michel Royer, “Chirac” features footage of the French president from his early career through to the present day. Rather like President Bush, Chirac’s declarations are often a major source of humor. Doc preemed last May at Cannes.
Also at Cannes, Baditri pacted with Paris-based sales agent Onoma on helmer Jean-Francois Davy’s dramatic mountain adventure “Les aiguilles rouges” (Red Needles).
Based on a true story, “Needles” turns on scouts on vacation in the Alps in the 1960s who find themselves lost high in the mountains.
The Barcelona-based boutique aims to distribute six titles theatrically and six or seven DVDs per year.
