Loic Magneron’s Paris-based Wide Management has inked a raft of sales across its lineup at the midpoint of the European Film Market.
Clementine Hugot, who heads up international sales, has sold “The Parade,” Srdjan Dragojevic’s Serbian hit dramedy, to Spain (Kiss Comunicacio) and Locarno prize-winner “The Girl From Nowhere” to Portugal (Leopardo Filmes).
Yevgeni Pashkevich’s “Gulf Stream Under the Iceberg,” which was the Latvian candidate in the foreign-language Oscar race, sold to Hong-Kong and Macao (Sundream) and Taiwan (Cineplex). Wide also closed Hong Kong and Macao (Sundream) on “Lead Us Not to Temptation.”
At Berlin, Wide is shopping 10 pics including two making market premieres: Danny Glover starrer “The Children’s Republic,” Flora Gomes’ West Africa-set drama turning on child soldiers; and Berlin Forum player “Cold Bloom,” directed by Japanese helmer Atsushi Funahashi.
Meanwhile, Wide House
, the documentary banner of Wide Management run by Anais Clanet
, is kicking off sales on “Exposed,” which plays in Panorama today, and “My Father and the Man in Black
,” directed by Jonathan Holiff
, the son of Johnny Cash’s longtime manager.
“Exposed” profiles eight female and male artists who transgress sexual and social taboos. It stars burlesque dancers Dirty Linda Marraccini and Julie Ann Muz, who toplined Mathieu Amalric’s “On Tour,” which earned the director nod at Cannes in 2010.
