Catalog deal will cover around 10 films
Luis Minarro, Barcelona-based Eddie Saeta co-produced “Uncle Boonmee” and produced Agusti Vila’s “The Mosquito Net,” which won Karlovy Vary’s top Crystal Globe in July. Minarro has produced pics from many of Barcelona’s leading auteurs such as Isabel Coixet’s breakthrough “Things I Never Told You,” Marc Recha’s “Where Is Madame Catherine?,” Jose Luis Guerin’s “In the City of Sylvia” and Albert Serra’s “The Honor of the Knights” and “Birdsong.” The catalog deal will cover around 10 films, Rud said. The Eddie Saeta agreement bulks up FilmSharks’ library, which already taps titles from Argentina’s Disney-backed Patagonik Film Group and CIE-owned Altavista in Mexico.
