Films Distribution picks up ‘Parents’

Co. takes all rights outside Latin America

Paris-based Films Distribution has snapped up all rights outside Latin American to Cao Hamburger’s “The Year My Parents Went on Vacation,” which screened in the Competition Friday.

Set in 1970, “O Ano Em Que Meus Pais Sairam De Ferias” turns on a boy who’s suddenly abandoned in a Jewish community when his left-wing parents are forced to flee Brazil, then under military dictatorship.

“Year” was released in Brazil in November by BVI, which also holds all rights to Latin America.

“The Year” was produced by brothers Caio and Fabiano Gullane’s Gullane Filmes, Caos Prods. and Miravista, and co-produced by Globo Filmes. It was also backed by the first RB Cinema fund.

The deal was brokered at Berlin by Films Distribution partner Nicolas Brigaud-Robert, Fabiano Gullane and Katia Machado.

“The Year” originally figured on the sales slate of an RB Cinema-backed sales company, run by Machado.

“But Films Distribution deal was too good to refuse. It’s an established company that works with the same kind of films which we produce,” Fabiano Gullane said.

At Berlin, Films Distribution is repping Chinese pic “Lost in Beijing,” which has attracted a lot of press because of attempts by Chinese authorities to censor the pic.
