Netherlands’ Lemming to Co-produce Guzzoni’s ‘Nobody Boy’

Project is Chilean helmer's follow-up to 'Dog Flesh'

SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain — Dutch powerhouse Lemming Film has come aboard as a co-producer on Fernando Guzzoni’s drama “Nobody Boy,” the Chilean helmer’s sophomore feature film after “Dog Flesh,” which earned the San Sebastian Festival’s New Directors Prize in 2012.

Developed at Paz Urrutia’s Chilean outfit Solita Producciones, project has also attached Jacques Bidou and Marianne Dumoulin’s Paris-based JBA Production as its French co-producer.

A dysfunctional father-son relationship “Nobody Boy” turns on the everyday life of Jesus, a 20-year-old broken son, who tries to find a place in his society and searches for love, a sexual identity and emotional foundations.

“Nobody Boy” talks “about the relationship between a son who lacks the protection of a father and a father who thought that being a parent is to be stern and authoritarian,” helmer-scribe Fernando Guzzoni said at San Sebastian.

“This drama could be set in many parts of the world,” added Constanza Arena, exec director at CinemaChile, Chile’s film promotion org.

One of the 16 projects selected to be pitched at the second Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum, which runs through Wednesday, “Nobody Boy” hopes to snag co-production deals with European or Latin American partners and a sales agent. Some potential partners have already shown interest.

“Nobody Boy” represents a further example of one of the biggest trends at this year’s San Sebastian Co-production Forum: Companies from Spain and Latin America turning to more than one co-production partner that can help a film gain market reach abroad and increase the possibility of further national and international funding.
