WTFilms Climbs on Helena Taberna’s Spanish Thriller ‘The Cliff’

Paris-based sales outfit WTFilms has boarded Helena Taberna’s “The Cliff” (“Acantilado”), a Spanish thriller with Daniel Grao (“Julieta”), Jon Kortajena (“A Single Man”).

An adaptation of Lucia Etxebarria’s mystery book “The Contents of Silence,”
“The Cliff” turns on a promising attorney whose life is turned upside down when his sister Cordelia is seduced into a sect that commits a mass suicide in the Canary Islands. Iker Ganuza produced the film.

Spanish newcomers Juana Acosta, Goya Toledo, and Ingrid Garcia-Jonsson complete the cast.

“‘The Cliff’ is like a dark, twisty and sexy Scandinavian thriller transposed in the extraordinary cinematic landscapes of the Canary Islands. The visuals will take your breath away and it boasts a trio of very talented and beautiful upcoming actresses, says Gregory Chambet, co-founding partner of WTFilms, who added the movie was WTFilms’ first foray into Spanish cinema;

Taberna, meanwhile, said the title of the movie “refers not only to the geographical feature but also to the emotional and psychological status of the characters. This film is about identity, guilt and loss.”

WTFilms is launching the film in Cannes with a screening premiere on the first day of the market.

Pic will be released in Spain on June 3 by Alfa/Betta.
