TLA Releasing has acquired the U.K., Poland and French-speaking European rights to Venezuelan gay family drama “Blue and Not So Pink,” the directorial debut of actor-turned-director Miguel Ferrari.

The new deal, finalized in Buenos Aires by TLA Releasing prexy Derek Curl and Germany’s sales outfit Media Luna New Films founder Ida Martins, sees a theatrical release by next summer, followed by a DVD/VOD launch in the negotiated territories.

Unspooled Tuesday at Ventana Sur after its August’s Montreal World Film Festival screening, “Blue” is a rights-of-passage movie turning on Diego, a young and successful fashion photographer whose shallow world is tuened upside down when his lover, pediatrician Fabrizio, is hospitalized in a coma and Diego’s estranged 15 year-old-son, who knows nothing about his father’s gayness, is left in his care.

Father and son have to accept each other, and Diego has to negotiate the opposition of Fabrzio’s homophobic parents.

“’Blue and Not So Pink’ is a remarkable film coming out from Venezuela. Miguel Ferrari has delivered a captivating, moving and meaningful drama which we are confident will speak to our core audience and far beyond,” Derek Curl said.
