Toronto: Imagina Grabs Global Sales Rights to ‘Bambi,’ ‘Wound’

Scooping up two awaited Spanish titles, Madrid-based Imagina International Sales has closed world sales rights to the Sony-distribbed “Who Killed Bambi?”, the latest film from “The Orphanage” producer Rodar y Rodar, as well as Fernando Franco’s “The Wound,” the only debut film in competition at the fast-approaching San Sebastian Festival.

A Nov. 17 Sony Pictures Espana release in Spain, “Bambi” receives a Toronto market screening. Toplining Ernesto Alterio (“Clandestine Childhood”), Quim Gutierrez (“Dark Blue Almost Black”) and Clara Lago (“Fin”), “Bambi” is a bungled kidnap comedy helmed by Santi Amodeo, director of two quirky mid-decade dramas — “Astronauts” and “Doghead” — that is loosely inspired by Mexico’s “Matando Cabos.”

Imagina COO Geraldine Gonard describes it as a dark screwball comedy. “Bambi” marks “a move towards the mainstream” for Amodeo, per Rodar producer Joaquin Padro.

In “The Wound,” Franco delivers an intimate portrait of a woman battling a borderline personality disorder. Marian Alvarez, a 2007 Locarno Fest best actress winner for “The Best of Me,” plays Ana.

“Wound” competes at October’s BFI-London Film Festival for the first feature Sutherland Award. It is produced by Koldo Zuazua’s San Sebastian-based Kowalski Films, which co-produced two other San Sebastian titles: BVI Spain release “Zip & Zap and the Marble Gang” and “Violet,” from Luiso Berdejo, who debuted with Kevin Costner-starrer “The New Daughter.”

“’The Wound’ is a beautiful film, treating a little-known illness, which is suddenly in the public eye, but difficult to detect or treat.” said Gonard.
