50 digital screens to launch in Bolivia
Fledgling Miami-based sales and production company Ondamax Films, sister shingle Buena Onda Americas and Bolivian producer Prodecine have jointly launched a network of 50 digital screens in Bolivia.
Initiative, which includes setting up digital screens in theaters and community centers, kicked off with “Evo Pueblo,” a biopic about Bolivian prexy Evo Morales that Ondamax has added to its catalog of two dozen Latin American pics at the AFM.
Company’s slate includes Ondamax’s first-English language acquisition, Brian Petersen’s border-crossing drama “Coyote”; recent Toronto Discovery award winner “Cochochi”; and Chicago Film Festival Silver Hugo winner “Not by Chance.”
Run by industry vets Eric Mathis and Donald Ranvaud, Ondamax just sold Brazilian homevid rights for Heitor Dahlia’s “Drained” to Universal Brazil at the Santa Monica confab.
Company will release 10 new productions in the 2007-08 season, including “Lokas,” “The King of Cha-Cha-Cha,” “Captains of the Sands,” “Thunderman,” “White Bear,” “Anarcomarka,” “Tentayape” and “Old Mountain.”
