Chile’s ‘Girls’ finds cast

Saavedra, Gavilan set to star

Chile’s Fabula and Marc Irmer’s Paris-based Dolce Vita Films have teamed to produce “The Quispe Girls,” starring high-profile Chilean actresses Catalina Saavedra and Francisca Gavilan.

The first fiction feature of Sebastian Sepulveda (“El Arenal”), the 1974-set “Girls” follows the three goatherding Coya sisters, who have lost their mother and oldest sister. “Girls” scooped the 2011 Guadalajara Fest’s Churubusco prize at its Ibero-American Co-Production Meeting.

Saavedra is known for her Sundance award-winning performance in Chile’s “The Maid,” while Gavilan was the title character in Andres Wood’s “Violeta Went to Heaven,” which took Sundance’s World Cinema Grand Jury Prize last month.

“We wanted to cast pro and non-pro actors, to achieve a freshness,” said producer Juan de Dios Larrain, who runs Fabula with film director brother Pablo Larrain.

Fabula is emerging as one of South America’s pace-setting production houses. On Friday, Participant Media announced that its first foreign-language film investment would be Pablo Larrain’s latest director outing, “No,” which Funny Balloons is introducing in Berlin.

Meanwhile, the Fabula-produced “Young & Wild,” sold by Elle Driver, made its Euro preem Monday in Berlin’s Generation 14 Plus.

“Wild” turns on the sexed-up confessional blog of the bisexual daughter of strict evangelist parents. It marks the fiction feature debut of Marialy Rivas, whose “Blokes,” co-written with Rodrigo Bellott, unspooled in Cannes 2010 competition. World preeming at Sundance, it won the World Cinema screenplay prize.
