Outsider takes U.S., Canada on ‘Finisterrae’

Ghostly pic won Rotterdam prize

Outsider Pictures has picked up all U.S. and Canadian rights to Sergio Caballero’s comedic drama “Finisterrae,” sold by Buenos Aires’ FilmSharks Intl.

A L.A.-based sales agent and distributor, releasing films in the U.S., Canada and Latin America, Outsider aims to bring moviegoers the most original stories from around the world, according to its mission statement.

Winning a Tiger Award for debut feature at the 2010 Rotterdam Festival, pic turns on two Russian ghosts, who walk the St. James Way to Finisterrae, a cape in northwest Spain, in an attempt to rejoin the land of the living.

Pic is peppered with surreal moments which seem to spoof highbrow artfilms.

“Finisterrae” is produced by Luis Minarro’s Barcelona-based Eddie Saeta, co-producer of Cannes Palme d’Or winner “Uncle Boonmee…,” and one of the driving forces behind left-of-field filmmaking in Europe.

In a separate deal closed at the Rome Festival’s Business Street, Inmovision has acquired Brazilian rights to Argentinean Marcos Carnevale’s “Widows.” Argentina’s biggest late-summer local hit, grossing $1.9 million for BVI from a Aug. 18 bow, “Widow” toplines two of the country’s best-regarded actresses, Graciela Borges (“The Hands”) and Valeria Bertuccelli (“A Boyfriend For My Wife”) in the story of the widow of a man who grudgingly looks after his mistress, now pregnant with his child.

Produced by Fernando Sokolowicz and Disney co-owned Patagonik, “Widows” has sparked distributor interest in the U.S., Japan, France and Spain, said FilmSharks’ Guido Rud.
