Directed by Jon Garaño and Jose Mari Goenaga, “Flowers” (“Loreak”) marks the first time the country has selected a film in Euskara, the language of the Basque people. The movie won the Cine Latino Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and is an official selection at BFI’s London Film Festival and the San Sebastian Film Festival.
“Flowers” centers around three women whose lives intertwine in unexpected ways when a sudden, tragic event jolts all of them into a new reality. The film opens at New York’s Paris Theater on Oct. 30, followed by Los Angeles on Nov. 27.
The deal for North American distribution was finalized with Spain’s Film Factory.
