Canteen Outlaws to Serve Up ‘Blue and Not So Pink’ for the U.S., Canada

Deal sealed at Ventana Sur by Canteen’s Raymond Murray and Media Luna New Films’ Ida Martins

BUENOS AIRES – Canteen Outlaws, the new gay-focused label of TLA Entertainment Group and Artsploitation Films, has acquired Venezuelan gay family drama “Blue and Not So Pink,” the directorial debut of actor-turned-director Miguel Ferrari.

Canteen prexy Raymond Murray and Media Luna News Films’ founder Ida Martins closed the deal during the second day of trading at Buenos Aires’ Ventana Sur, Latin America’s biggest film mart-meet that kicked off Tuesday.

Canteen Outlaws will give “Blue,” which screened at Ventana Sur on Tuesday, a theatrical release in the U.S. and English-speaking Canada. Canteen Outlaws will screen “Blue” at American festivals summer 2014, with its theatrical release scheduled for late summer and the DVD/VOD release for late fall.

Seen at August’s Montreal World Film Festival, “Blue” is a rights-of-passage movie turning on Diego, a young and successful photographer whose frivolous world is thrown into turmoil when his partner, Fabrizio, suffers a car accident that leaves him in a coma and Diego’s estranged 15 year-old-son, who knows nothing about his father’s gayness, is left in his care.

“‘Blue and Not So Pink’ is a refreshing take on new gay cinema. It is an absorbing and tender drama dealing with present-day issues facing gay men today: family, homophobia, gay parenting and love,” Murray said.

“While entertaining and often funny, the film retains a serious core,” he added. “It is truly a family-friendly gay drama.”
