Latinofusion builds on ‘Bridges’

Film sold to Pro-Fun Media, Peccadillo Pics

“Quemar las naves” (Burn the Bridges) was sold in Berlin by Mexican sales company Latinofusion to Germany (Pro-Fun Media) and the U.K. (Peccadillo Pics).

A deal will soon close for France, Latinofusion CEO Alfredo Calvino said at Berlin’s European Film Market.

Gussi has taken Latin American and the U.S., where “Bridges” looks set to go out on DVD.

Seen at Palm Springs, Francisco Franco Alba’s “Bridges,” a coming-of-ager with homosexual overtones, won audience awards at Italy’s Torino and Mexico’s Morelia festival. Two well-known Mexican femme filmmakers — Laura Imperiale (“El crimen del Padre Amaro”) and director Maria Novaro (“Danzon”) — produced.

The international sales wing of Guadalajara U., Alfredo Calvino’s Latinofusion has taken on sales duties for Spain-Puerto Rico co-production “La Mala,” directed by Lilian Rosado and produced by Pedro Perez-Rosado. Pic stars Cuban-born Lena Burke as a young woman intent on becoming a famous singer, whatever the cost.

At the European Film Market, Latinofusion is also repping feel-good Jewish family reconciliation drama “Nora’s Will” by Mariana Chenillo; Joe Gutierrez’s “Otro tipo de musica” (Another Type of Music), the first fiction feature 100% produced by Guadalajara U.’s Cinefusion, a Latinofusion sister company; and Alberto Cortes’ Sundance player “Corazon del tiempo” (Heart of Time), a take on a wedding problem in a Zapatista community, wedged between Zapatista rebels in the mountains and government forces. “There’s a myth that Zapatista are all rebels: it’s just not true,” said Calvino.
