Shoreline Banks on Latam Titles

MADRID — U.S. sales company Shoreline Entertainment has added to its well-stocked line-up in Latin American titles, acquiring world sales rights to coming-of-age tale “Al sur de la inocencia.”

Deal marks Shoreline’s first pickup of a feature from the Dominican Republic as the island nation ramps up production thanks to the 2011 introduction of a 25% transferable tax credit.

“Inocencia” marks the feature debut of 24-year-old Hector Valdez, who made a splash shooting short “729,” which is claimed to be the first sci-fi film ever made in the Dominican Republic.

Skedded to bow in the Dominican Republic in April, and being put forward for an international festival premiere, “Inocencia” turns on two upper-class stepsiblings, who escape to the little-visited south of the Dominican Republic, along with a photographerwhere they see another side of Dominican reality.

Shot in the south of the island as an homage to its people, “Inocencia” stars Christian Alvarez, Sarah Jorge and Frank Perozo (“Miente”), one of the Dominican Republic’s best-known thesps, as Santiago. Based on an original idea by Valdez, “Inocencia” was written by Cynthia F. Cota.

Vanessa Haney negotiated the deal on behalf of Shoreline, Valdez and producer Claudette Lali negotiated for the production.

“We expect to garner critical acclaim and wide distribution as we have done with other Latino films from unexpected countries such as ‘7 Boxes’ from Paraguay, ‘Contracorriente’ from Chile and, of course, ‘The Maid’ from Chile,” said Shoreline’s Sam Eigen.
