Sogepaq bags ‘Princesas’

Pic is one of five AFM market preems

MADRID — Gearing up for the American Film Market, Sogecable distribution house Sogepaq has taken international rights outside North America to Spanish cinema’s biggest arthouse crossover hit this year, Fernando Leon’s “Princesas” (Princesses).

North American rights are retained by the film’s producers, Reposado and Mediapro, and are being represented by Los Angeles-based producer Sergio Aguero.

“Princesses” charts the growing friendship between two prostitutes. Distributed in Spain by Sogepaq through Warner Sogefilms, a joint venture with Warner Bros., pic has taken E4.9 million ($5.8 million) in Spain, a large sum for a film with a social conscience.

“Princesses” is one of five Sogepaq AFM market preems, along with old-age romantic comedy “Elsa & Fred” from Marcos Carnevale, which has been a standout B.O. performer in Argentina; Isidro Ortiz’s sci-fi thriller “Somne”; boisterous 1980s musical comedy “El Calentito,” from Chus Gutierrez; and “Real Madrid, the Movie,” the first movie production of Real Madrid soccer club whose star players include David Beckham and Ronaldo.
