CANNES: Rodrigo Bellott, Rodrigo Orozco, Alessandra Lo Savio Launch Production Company (EXCLUSIVE)

New York-based company aims to produce irreverent bold movies

Bolivia’s Rodrigo Bellott, (pictured) one of Latin America’s best-known filmmakers, and Rodrigo Orozco, have teamed with Italian entrepreneur Alessandra Lo Savio to launch Bolivian Bold USA.

Bellott will serve as Bolivian Bold prexy/CEO with Orozco taking the VP reins.

New York-based, Bolivian Bold will have access to its own production funding. It will focus, as its moniker implies, on English-language projects that are “different, irreverent, one-of-a-kind, bold,” Bellott said at Cannes. “Bolivia has no rules about how to make films, so we can be bold, but will aim to be commercial at the same time.”

Bolivian Bold will draw on directorial talent from the U.S., Europe and Latin America. Projects will be producer-driven.

An usual hybrid, a filmmaker who has extensive sales agents and producer contacts, Bellott saw his debut, “Sexual Dependency,” released to critical acclaim. He went on to helm “Who Killed the White Llama?” the highest-grossing Bolivian film ever, cast Steven Soderbergh’s “Che” and produce Jim Mickle’s 2013 Sundance hit “We Are What We Are.”

Orozco served as a production coordinator on Sebastian Silva’s “Magic Magic,” working at Frida Torresblanco’s Braven Films, which produced “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Rudi and Cursi” and “The Assassination of Richard Nixon.”

A Spain-based music-sector manager and concert producer, Lo Savio will serve as Bolivian Bold’s CFO.
