Helmer-scribe producing third pic

World Brief

Argentine helmer-scribe Fernando Musa will start lensing his third feature, drama “Chiche bombon” (Pretty Gem), in July.

Musa is producing the $490,000 project under his co-owned MantaRaya Cine banner, based on his screenplay.

A metaphor for today’s Argentina, the pic concerns a woman in her late twenties who is pregnant by an 18-year-old neighbor.

Musa’s second feature, the “No sabe, no contesta” (Don’t Know, Don’t Answer), sold 34,000 tickets during its run here in 2001. The story of four friends in middle-class Argentina is set for a premiere in Spain later this year, distributed by Spanish sales house Bulbeck & Mas.
