Escandalo boards Garaje’s ‘Chronicle’

Barcelona shingle greenlights first production

Spain’s Escandalo Films will co-produce prodco Cine de Garaje’s first feature, “Chronicle Beyond the Border.”

Barcelona-based Garaje was founded by Luis de la Madrid and Brazil-born music-vid helmer Andre Cruz Shirawa. “Chronicle” is Shirawa’s directorial debut.

Added to co-production equity from Catalan pubcaster TV3, and subsidies from the Icaa Film Institute and Icic Catalan film board, Escandalo’s participation is a greenlight for the pic.

Written by Shirawa and Aurora Sulli, “Chronicle” follows a woman and her 9-year-old son fleeing from a disaster in a refugee camp guarded by soldiers and security cameras that holds a sinister surprise.

“Chronicle” will be exec produced by Antonia Nava, the longtime VP of sales and co-productions at Filmax before she left to set up her own company. De la Madrid edited or oversaw post-production on many Filmax features including Brad Anderson’s “The Machinist” and Jaume Balaguero’s “The Nameless” and “Darkness.”

“Garaje aims to generate sci-fi and fantasy: ‘Chronicle’ is our flagship,” De la Madrid said at Sitges.

Escandalo produced Sitges opener “Eva” and upcoming Martin Freeman starrer “Animals.”

The co-production equity on “Chronicle” is a departure for Escandalo.

Since its first feature, 2007’s “Me,” it has been lead or solo producing first features by former students of Barcelona’s Escac film school.
