Williams scores 3 pix

KWA to also rep several films at Cannes

MADRID — Madrid-based indie sales house Kevin Williams Associates has taken international sales rights to Carmen Maura starrer “La promesa” (The Promise), offbeat Catalan comedy “Excusas” (Excuses!) and Salvador Garcia Ruiz’s 1950s drama “Las voces de la noche” (Voices in the Night).

In the psychothriller “Promise” directed by Hector Carre, Maura toplines as a schizoid wife who kills her husband and then goes on the lam, getting a job as a housemaid.

Typifying one strain in Catalan filmmaking, “Excuses” is a bigscreen adaptation of a stage play and a contempo comedy of manners, acidly analyzing the behavior of a group of thirtysomethings who refuse to grow up.

Joel Joan co-produced the film with Marta Esteban (“Land and Freedom”), and also directs and co-stars.

Co-produced by expanding media producer-distrib DeAPlaneta with upscale production company Esicma and Italy’s Mikado, “Voices” is the third film from Garcia Ruiz, who made his name with youth-skewed “Mensaka.”

KWA also will rep two other new films at Cannes in May: Argentine hit “Soy tu aventura” (I Am Your Adventure) by Nestor Jose Montalbano, about two bankrupt cousins who kidnap ’70s Cuban crooner Luis Aguile, famous for singing “Cuando sali de Cuba”; and Columbia drama “La primera noche” (The First Night) from Luis Alberto Restrepo, about two brothers on different sides of Colombia’s government-FARC terrorists conflict.
