World brief

Argentine helmer-scribe Santiago Carlos Oves has begun lensing “Conversaciones con mama” (Conversations With Mother), a drama starring veteran actress Concepcion “China” Zorrilla de San Martin and Eduardo Blanco (“Son of the Bride”).

Oves, who won director honors at the 1996 Bogota Film Festival for “El Verso” (The Verse), is producing the $630,000 project with Carlos Piwowarski, Luisa Matienzo and Pascual Condito.

Scripted by Oves, “Conversations” concerns a man who is forced to sell his mother’s home after he loses his job. But his mother, 82, and her boyfriend won’t move out. Ulises Dumont (“Gangs From Rosario”) co-stars.

Pic is set for release in September, with domestic and international sales handled by co-producer Pascual Condito’s distrib companies Primer Plano Film Group and Orler.
