Toronto: Media Luna Adds ‘Unlucky Plaza’ to Sales Slate

Media Luna has acquired world sales rights to Singapore writer-director Ken Kwek’s feature bow “Unlucky Plaza” in advance of its world preem in the Toronto film festival’s Discovery program Sept. 4.

Based on a true story, the dark-hued comedy-thriller “Plaza” follows the fates of an arrogant motivational speaker in debt to the Chinese mafia and his unhappy wife, who offers to rent her parents’ apartment to an evicted single father.

“Plaza” was produced by Kwek, Leon Tong and Kat Goh. Eng Hua Kuah, Lincoln Chan and Matlock Stone are exec producers.

Kwek’s 2013 pic “Sex.Violence.FamilyValues,” a compilation of his short films, was banned in Singapore and Malaysia.

As announced last month, Media Luna is also repping award-winning Argentinean helmer Anahi Berneri’s breakup drama “Open Air,” and U.K. graphic novelist and artist Dave McKean’s fantasy chiller “Luna,” which world preems in Vanguard, in Toronto.
