Toronto: Shoreline Swoops on ‘I Am Not Lorena’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Produced by Forastero (‘The Maid’), the identity thriller world preems at Toronto

MADRID – U.S. sales company Shoreline Entertainment and Chile’s Forastero are reteaming on “I Am Not Lorena,” which world preems in the Toronto Fest’s Discovery section.

Acquired by Shoreline for worldwide sales in a deal announced Friday and produced by Forastero’s Gregorio Gonzalez and Josefina Undurraga, “Lorena” marks the feature debut of Chile’s Isidora Marras.

A contempo identity drama-thriller, it centers on a young actress, who is suddenly hounded by collection agencies, which confuse her with someone else. As the harassment multiplies and turns nasty, she sets out to discover the real Lorena, a trip into an unknown and unseemly Santiago de Chile.

Co-produced by another Chilean outfit, Yassin Velasquez and Giancarlo Nasi’s Don Quijote Films (“In the Shade of the Trees”) and Buenos Aires’ Carrousel Films (“Puzzle”), “Lorena” marks not only a talent to track and yet another emerging Chilean distaff director, but yet another move by a Latin American production house into genre filmmaking, meshed with social-issues.

“Isidora Marras’ debut is an original crowd pleaser that will connect with audiences across the world.  We began an outstanding relationship with Gregorio Gonzalez and Forastero with the international hit ‘La Nana’ (The Maid), and we’re very much looking forward to continued commercial success with this film,” said Sam Eigen, executive vice president, Shoreline Entertainment.

“’I Am Not Lorena’ has the potential to shine beyond the usual circuit for Chilean films, and we believe that Sam and his team are the ones who can make this film reach worldwide success,” said Gregorio Gonzalez, managing partner/producer, Forastero. The company produced Golden Globe-nominated “The Maid,” an early Shoreline sales hit. “We are also very pleased to return to Toronto for our second TIFF premiere and we are very happy for the recognition given Isidora and our lead actress Loreto Aravena, who will be joining us in Toronto.  It’s always a source of great pride for us to bring new talent to world audiences.”
