Imovision, Cineplex take ‘Sleeping Voice’

Zambrano's sisters tale sees AFM preem

The Match Factory has initiated sales on Benito Zambrano’s “La voz dormida” (The Sleeping Voice), which sees its major market premiere Sunday at the American Film Market.

In key sales to two of Latin America’s most active indie distributors, The Match Factory has closed Brazil with Imovision and Colombia with Cineplex.

Latin American Pay TV (LAP TV) has acquired pay TV rights for Latin America and will air “Voice” on its super-premium film channel, Movie City.

“Voice” is the highly emotional tale of two sisters’ solidarity set against the background of the immediate aftermath in 1940 to Spain’s Civil War.

World preeming at late September’s San Sebastian Festival, where it garnered upbeat international reviews, it won Maria Leon a best actress Silver Shell for her perf as one of the sisters, a wide-eyed innocent who slowly awakes to the harrowing inhumanity of a country divided between winners and losers.

Penned by Zambrano and Ignacio del Moral, “Voice” is produced by Antonio Perez’s Maestranza Films, which saw one of its biggest hits ever with Zambrano’s 1999 debut, “Alone.”

Released by Warner Bros., “Voice” grossed a first-10-day Euros1.0 million ($1.4 million). Its subject-matter is sparking interest among U.S. buyers, The Match Factory’s sales head Brigitte Suarez said at the AFM before its first screening.
