FilmSharks sells ‘Uranya’

Coming-of-ager set for Eastern Europe, Spain

Guido Rud’s FilmSharks Intl. has sold  “Uranya” to Visual Factory for French-speaking territories and Eastern Europe.

Eurocine has taken Spain and Portugal on “Uranya,” a coming-of-ager from Costas Kapakas, set in an idyllic Greek village inhabited by with a local prostitute played by Maria Grazia Cucinotta.

The Spanish distributor has also licensed Conrad Clark’s “Soul Carriage” for Spain and Portugal.

A Chinese industrial heartland tale, “Carriage” won the prestigious Altadis New Directors award at September’s San Sebastian fest.

The deals come as FilmSharks, Argentina’s biggest indie sales company, launches two new labels — horror brand FilmDarks and animation division ToonSharks — and continues to acquire handling rights to a robust mix of titles.

The first new addition to the ToonShark label is “Papelucho,” produced by Chile’s Channel 13 and a local B.O. hit.

“FilmSharks can face up to top sales agents in two ways: seeking out the best product available anywhere, and playing off our Ibero-American strengths,” said Rud. “But our labels are world labels. The labels will brand our most commercial pickups, while Filmsharks will focus on the pearls,” he added.

Beyond the previously-announced Ricardo Darin pic “La senal,” which preems at the Berlin market, Rud has closed down “The Speed of Life,” the special jury prize winner at last year’s Venice Days.

“Speed” will receive its market preem at Berlin before a major European fest berth later this year, Rud said.
