Maraval

Co-Founder / Chief Content Officer

Hardworking and hard-partying, Maraval has been celebrated for taking risks on creatively ambitious work that often pays off in terms of awards. Wild Bunch won this year’s Palme d’Or for “Shoplifters,” an honorary Palme d’Or for Jean-Luc Godard’s “The Image Book” and prizes for “Capernaum” and “Climax.” Since becoming independent from Studiocanal in 2002, Wild Bunch has backed movies such as “Fahrenheit 9/11,” “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Blue Is the Warmest Color” and films from auteurs such as Ken Loach and Hayao Miyazaki. While it had run into problems with its creditors, the company recently sealed a $129.5 million restructuring plan with Sapinda — including an injection of equity capital — which is owned by Wild Bunch’s biggest German shareholder, Lars Windhorst.
