Three Dots fired up for ‘Lala’s Gun’

Sales outfits picks up rights to drama

HONG KONG — Three Dots Entertainment, the Taiwan-based independent producer and sales outfit, has picked up international sales rights to mainland Chinese coming-of-age story “Lala’s Gun.”

Pic is set in the only part of China where ownership of guns is legal and concerns an abandoned boy who goes in search of an ersatz father to give him his mark of manhood.

Helmed by Ning Jingwu, a prolific sixth generation director, “Lala” was filmed on location in the south western province of Guizhou using non-pro thesps. It preemed for buyers at last week’s Beijing Screenings.

“The film explores many themes relevant to our lives today, including issues of the environment and globalization, but at the same time the film is not bound by any era,” said Three Dots topper Michelle Yeh.

Three Dots also will present Zero Chou’s “Sacred Warriors” at next week’s Pusan Promotion Plan in South Korea.
