Walter Salles boards ‘Misencounter’

Pablo Trapero directs Spanish-language drama

“Motorcycle Diaries” helmer Walter Salles has boarded “Misencounter,” the Spanish-language drama helmed by festival regular Pablo Trapero (“El Bonaerense,” “Rolling Family”).

Pic is tale of a woman who accidentally kills her two lovers and tries to raise her son behind prison bars. It is being co-financed and sold in international territories by Korean sales house Cineclick Asia.

Salles’ VideoFilmes will join as co-producer and the Brazilian helmer assists pal Trapero with elements of the shoot. Lensing starts in Argentina in September. “‘Misencounter’ is a uniquely strong, emotional story about characters immersed in a world you rarely see depicted in cinema,” Salles said.

Cineclick was involved with Salles in 2004 when it took a turn into local distribution and picked up Korean rights to “Diaries.”
