BUENOS AIRES — Argentina’s Matanza Cine, the production company of “El Bonarense” helmer-scribe Pablo Trapero, is cranking up output with nearly a dozen local and foreign films lined up for the next 18 months.

It will produce Trapero’s “Familia rodante” (Rolling Family) about a grandmother who hits the road with her family in a motor home. Lensing is to begin in August.

That will be followed at the end of the year by Albertina Carri’s “Geminis” (Gemini), co-produced with Carri, France’s Fonds Sud Cinema and the U.S.’ Fireball Films.

Matanza will also produce Brazilian Suzana Amaral’s (“Hour of the Star”) road movie “Hotel Atlantico” in conjunction with Brazil’s Planifilms.

Formed last year, Matanza is backing a broad range of docs, features and shorts. “I want to help these films find a specific audience, even if it is small,” says Trapero, who was nominated for best foreign director of 2002 by France’s Culture Ministry.
