Chile, Mexico to team on ‘Seen’

Sahara and Altavista pair up for offbeat drama

MADRID  — Chile’s Sahara Films has teamed with Mexico’s Altavista Films to produce “Have You Seen Lupita?,” an offbeat, Mexico-to-Los Angeles coming-off-ager shot in Spanish, Spanglish and English.

Pic will be directed by vet Chilean helmer Gonzalo Justiniano (“B-Happy”). Producers are Daniel de la Vega and Monica Lozano at Altavista. New York-based Lucky Monkey will put up minority private equity.

Budgeted at $2.5 million, “Lupita” centers on a woman, interned in a psychiatric ward as an adolescent, who escapes and travels through Mexico trying to prove she’s normal.

Screenplay is by Justiniano, with Fernando Aragon, Hernan Rodriguez and Marina Stavenhagen, in one of Stavenhagen’s final writing gigs before taking over as director general at Mexico’s Imcine Film Institute last year.
