Film Factory kicks off with ‘Cousinhood’

Sanchez Arevalo's comedy to debut at Berlin's EFM

MADRID — Spaniard Vicente Canales’ new sales company Film Factory Ent. has started to build its first movie slate, picking up international distribution rights to Daniel Sanchez Arevalo’s comedy “Primos” (Cousinhood).

Both Film Factory and “Cousinhood” will debut internationally at February’s European Film Market in Berlin.

“Cousinhood” is the third feature from Sanchez Arevalo, one of Spain’s most talked-up new directors after his seminal debut “Darkbluealmostblack” in 2006, and 2009 comedy “Gordos,” a radical critique of Spain’s consumerism.

Pic also teams two of Spain’s most international production houses, Fernando Bovaira and Simon de Santiago’s Mod Prods., and Jose Antonio Felez’s Atipica Films.

Sanchez Arevalo described “Cousinhood” as a story that turns on “three rather goofy cousins coming back to the village where as adolescents they spent their summer vacation. They are fleeing from their lives and themselves.”

Cast includes Spanish thesps Antonio de la Torre, Quim Gutierrez and Raul Arevalo, who already coincided in “Darkbluealmostblack,” plus Adrian Lastra (“Brain Drain”) and Inma Cuesta (“Red Eagle, The Movie”).

A former head of Filmax’s international division, Canales has designed Film Factory’s slate around two types of film: genre pics from young helmers, often groundbreaking in nature and tackling fresh topics — and quality movies with major commercial appeal.

“‘Cousinhood’ perfectly suits the quality director-driven slate we want to bring to the marketplace,” Canales said.

Warner Bros. will release “Cousinhood” in Spain Feb. 4 on 250 prints.
