CANNES: Film Factory to Distribute Romance ‘Palm Trees in the Snow’

As Cannes kicks off, Film Factory has closed world sales rights to romance “Palm Trees in the Snow.” Pic is backed by “Buried” producer Adrian Guerra and Atresmedia Cine, whose credits include Woody Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” “I Want You” and “Zip & Zap and the Marble Gang.”

Warner Bros. will release “Palm Trees” in Spain on 500 screens in December 2015. Principal photography kicks off in July in Spain and Colombia. Film Factory presents a teaser promo at Cannes.

One of Spain’s biggest productions of the year, “Palm Trees” is written by “The Impossible” and “Orphanage” scribe Sergio Sanchez. It’s set in the last days of the Spanish colonies in Africa, following a star-crossed love, with the consequences of that love reaching into the 21st century.

Fernando Gonzalez Molina directs, coming off Spanish box office hits “Three Meters Above the Sky” and “I Want You.” “Palm Trees” stars two of Spain’s young marquee draws: Mario Casas, who has grown a following in key markets such as Russia and Latin America after toplining “Three Meters” and “I Want You”; and Adriana Ugarte, star of hit period TV drama “The Time in Between” and Daniel Calparsoro’s movie “Combustion,” which sold to most of the world. An actress winner at San Sebastian for “Blancanieves,” Macarena Garcia co-stars.
