Indie Circle closes on ‘Mataharis’

Euro syndicate corners femme sleuth drama

MADRID — Indie Circle, a pan-European consortium of independent distributors, has picked up Iciar Bollain’s “Mataharis” from Spain’s Sogepaq.

Deal, struck at Berlin, will see the femme drama being released by Indie Circle partners Haut et Court in France, Lucky Red for Italy, Cineart for Belgium, A-Film in the Netherlands and Frenetic for Switzerland.

Co-produced by Spain’s La Iguana and Sogecine, the movie is written by Iciar Bollain and Tatiana Rodriguez and marks Bollain’s follow-up to “Take My Eyes,” which Indie Circle also acquired.

A social conscious event film in Spain, “Eyes” won best actor (Luis Tosar) and actress (Laia Marull) at San Sebastian in 2003 and five top Spanish Academy Goyas in 2004, including film, director, actor, actress and original screenplay.

Starring Najwa Nimri (“Lovers of the Arctic Circle”), pic turns on three femme sleuths who try to balance their detective work with their private lives. They end up uncovering not only crime but some awkward home truths.

“‘Mataharis’ was born from the idea of talking again about men and women, their relations, what keeps women going, something so fragile and strong as trust,” Bollain commented.

Pic shoots in Spain from March 20. Sogepaq has taken world rights.
