Sundance: Global Screen Picks Up Manolo Cruz’s ‘Between Sea and Land’

LONDON — Global Screen has picked up worldwide distribution rights to Spanish-language drama “Between Sea and Land,” which is set to world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 22.

Manolo Cruz’s film, which is set on a small inlet close to the Caribbean Sea coast in Colombia, centers on 28-year-old Alberto and his mother Rosa. Alberto is afflicted with a neurological disorder that confines him to his bed, and his mother, Rosa, lovingly protects and takes care of him.

Alberto’s wry humor and creativity help them muster the strength to keep going, and he greatly enjoys the company of his neighbor Giselle, who showers him with affection. But the life Alberto can imagine feels just as close-yet-out-of-reach as the sea he looks out on, and which he dreams of exploring one-day. Cruz, who also wrote the film, plays Alberto.

Klaus Rasmussen, senior sales and acquisitions manager at Global Screen, stated: “Our whole team was amazed with this unique and exceptional film that takes the viewer into a different world poor in materialism, but rich in human heart and courage.”

The movie is produced by Mago Films and co-produced by Photogroup Films and Scarlett Cinema. It will be released in Colombia by UIP in April. Latin America will be handled by Cineplex while Global Screen is representing the film in all other territories.
