Telepool’s ‘Train’ crosses borders

'Late Bloomers' and 'Strike' sell at AFM

BERLIN — Telepool has closed a slew of deals at this year’s American Film Market in Santa Monica.

The Munich-based distrib sold Joseph Vilsmaier and Dana Vavrova’s holocaust drama “The Last Train” to distribs in Mexico, Venezuela and Turkey.

Bettina Oberli’s Locarno screener “Late Bloomers” went to Spain and Japan, while Volker Schlondorff’s German-Polish pic “Strike” sold Stateside.

Spain’s Filmax picked up the CGI animated pic “The Way to the Stars,” which also went to Brazil.

“‘The Last Train’ and ‘The Way to the Stars’ created a certain buzz at the market which overwhelmed us,” said Justyna Muesch, Telepool’s international sales manager. “We’re confident that the AFM will turn out even more successful than in the previous years.”

Telepool’s slate also includes the recent German box-office hit “7 Dwarves — The Wood Is Not Enough,” Til Schweiger starrer “Where Is Fred?” and buddy drama “A Friend of Mine,” starring Daniel Bruehl and Juergen Vogel.
