Wide sells ‘Another Man,’ ‘Black’

Axia, Evokative close deals at Montreal

MADRID — Rolling off close-of-play biz at the Montreal World Film Festival, which wrapped Monday, Paris-based sales and production company Wide Management has clinched all-rights deal to Canada on Lionel Baier’s “Another Man” and Pierre Laffargue’s “Black.”

Armand Lafond’s Axia Films has taken “Man,” Baier’s Locarno Competition satire about a dullard film reviewer who plagiarises word-for-word another critic’s copy.

Bound for Pusan, “Man” will be distributed in France by Epicentre Films.

“Black” has been bought by startup Montreal-based indie distrib Evokative Films.

Toplining French rapper MC Jean Gab’1 as Black, the humor-laced actioner concerns a Senegalese bank robber, born and raised in France, who gets a call from his cousin to pull a supposedly easy bank heist in Dakar, Senegal’s capital. Pic is shot in Paris and Dakar.

Wide has also just picked up international rights on “Du Bruit dans la tete” (The Noise in My Head), directed by Switzerland’s Vincent Pluss (“On Dirait le sud”).

“Head,” a Swiss-German co-production, turns on a thirtysomething woman who takes an 18-year-old man into her home.
