Toronto: New Europe Picks Up Anton Yelchin Drama ‘Porto’

New Europe Film Sales has picked up “Porto,” directed by Gabe Klinger and starring the late Anton Yelchin and Lucie Lucas. Film was executive produced by Jim Jarmusch.

“Porto” tells the story of Jake (Anton Yelchin) and Mati (Lucie Lucas), two outsiders in the Portuguese city of the film’s title who once experienced a brief but passionate love affair.

The film is the narrative feature debut of critic, curator and director Klinger, who previously directed the Venice-award-winning documentary “Double Play: James Benning and Richard Linklater.”

The film is a co-production between Portugal (Bando À Parte), USA (Double Play Films), France (Gladys Glover) and Poland (Madants), and is set to unspool at the San Sebastian Film Festival’s New Directors competition and the London Film Festival’s First Feature Competition.

Jan Naszewski, New Europe’s CEO, will present a promo for the film in Toronto.
