Productions include 'Perez' and 'R. Lorena'
Chile’s Gregorio Gonzalez, producer of “The Maid,” has unveiled two productions at Toronto: thesp Alvaro Viguera’s “Perez” and Isidora Marras’ “R. Lorena.”Written by actress Elisa Zulueta, adapting her own hit stage play, “Perez” turns on a father’s conflicted re-encounter with a 22-year-old daughter he’s long ignored. Produced by Antonia Santa Maria, pic toplines Santa Maria, Luis Gnecco, a star of HBO Latin America series “Profugos,” and Natalia Grez (“Metro cuadrado”). Forastero, Gonzalez’s shingle, has taken co-production equity in “Perez,” covering post-prod costs. “R. Lorena,” an identity thriller, follows a young woman whose mother suffers Alzheimer’s and is suddenly hounded by collection agencies, which mistake her for someone else. Produced by Forastero exec Josefina Undurraga, and co-produced by 1.90 Cine Digital and Don Quijote Films, “R. Lorena” shoots early 2012. Meanwhile, Dominga Sotomayor’s “From Thursday to Sunday” is in advanced post-prod, and Sebastian Brahm’s “Roman’s Circuit,” screens Monday and Tuesday at Toronto’s Discovery section. “Circuit” is a tale of academic ambition and the past’s weight on the present. “Circuit” is sold by Shoreline Ent., “Thursday” by Urban Distribution Intl.
