MUNICH — Productions from Latin America took the lion’s share in the second allocation round of the World Cinema Fund, established by the Berlin Film Festival.

Two Argentinean pics will receive production support: Sandra Gugliotta’s drama about the disappearance of a salesman, “Las vidas posibles,” and Rodrigo Moreno’s story about a bodyguard, “El custodio.”

Also being backed are Kiko Goifman’s Brazilian doc “Atos dos homens,” about a slum massacre; “Hamanca Paraguay,” from Paz Encina; and Israeli production “Zion and His Brother,” by Eran Merav.

Fund’s jury includes Berlinale topper Dieter Kosslick. The fund’s annual budget is $724,000.
