SPI International has taken rights for U.S., UK, CEE, Turkey, Benelux, Portugal and China on crime-thriller Watch The Sunset, billed as Australia’s first one-take feature film. The deal was brokered by Australian distribution and international sales company Fighting Chance Films. The film follows Danny Biaro (Tristan Barr), a man desperately trying to escape his outlaw bike gang, The Bloodless Brothers. French director, producer and actress Maïwen will receive an A Tribute To… award at this year’s Zurich Film Festival. The filmmaker will be in town on October 1 to present her most recent film ADN (DNA). Her credits as an actress include Leon and The Fifth Element, and she has been directing since 2004, wining the Jury Prize at Cannes for Polisse in 2011. “Maïwenn is one of French cinema’s most multifaceted filmmakers. She writes her own screenplays and often plays a role in and directs her own movies. With her finger on the pulse of time, her stories spring straight from life and resonate with an urgency that captivates audiences,” said Zurich Artistic Director Christian Jungen. “She is also a gifted director who is able to get the very best from her character actors.” Related Story Banijay Becomes Latest… Read full this story
