Paris-based Rezo has picked up international sales on two Berlin Panorama players: Jonathan Nossiter’s eco-themed documentary “Natural Resistance” and Tinatin Kajrishvili’s Georgian romance drama “Brides.”
“Natural Resistance” follows four Italian winemakers who live in a 11th century monastery-cum-winery in Tuscany and rely on local traditions, battle policies set by the European Union and winegrowers’ associations. It’s produced by Les Films du Rat.
“I worked on Nossiter’s ‘Mondovino,’ which played at Cannes and sold very well,” said Rezo’s head of sales Sebastien Chesneau.
“Brides,” produced by Gemini, stars Mari Kitia and Giorgi Maskharashvili as an unusual Georgian couple whose relationship is strained as the man has been sentenced to several years in prison.
Rezo is hosting the market bows of two French romantic comedies: “Best in Bed,” by Delphine Le Vigan, and “Darling Trap,” helmed by Catherine Castel.
