KUDO’D CAPTAIN

Fest opens with Jordan’s first Oscar entry, Amin Matalqa’s “Captain Abu Raed,” which nabbed the World Cinema Audience Award at Sundance. Fortissimo handles international.

GREAT DANES

Danish cinema’s highest-budgeted film ever, the $9 million “Flame and Citron,” from Ole Christian Madsen, turns on two Danish resistance heroes during Nazi occupation. “Flame” racked up strong international sales for the Match Factory. Also from Denmark: Henric Ruben Genz’s postmodern genre-bending “Terribly Happy,” a black comic thriller that took Karlovy Vary’s Crystal Globe, with Trust-Nordisk snapping up international.

TRUTH AND FICTION

From Spain, docu “Una cierta verdad” is the first feature from Abel Garcia Roure, first a.d. to Jose Luis Guerin (“In the City of Sylvia”). Film straddles the docu-fiction divide. Notro distributes worldwide.

SPANISH ENTRIES
