Kevin Williams Associates has licensed Argentine-Spanish film “Un dia de suerte” (A Lucky Day) to the U.K.’s Feature Film Company for a theatrical release.
The debut feature from Argentinian Sandra Gugliotta features a young girl who tries to make ends meet in contempo Argentina. She finally gives up and emigrates to Italy.
“Lucky Day” played in the Berlin Fest Forum section last year and has sold to Germany. It will be released in the U.K. this summer.
The BBC has taken U.K. TV rights on the feature.
In a second Brit deal for KWA, Optimum Releasing has acquired U.K. theatrical rights on Spanish classic “El espiritu de la colmena” (The Spirit of the Beehive) from Victor Erice.
“Spirit” will open at the London Curzon arthouse in July prior to a retro of Erice’s films at the National Film Theatre.
