Spotlight shines on Marfa Girl
EXCLUSIVE: Spotlight Pictures acquires world rights to Larry Clark’s coming-of-age tale [pictured].
Spotlight Pictures has secured world rights to Larry Clark’s Marfa Girl and has been in talks with buyers here.
Drake Burnette and Adam Mediano star in the coming-of-age tale of a teenager in small-town Texas.
Carlos Rincon of Spotlight negotiated the deal with producer Adam Sherman. Marfa Girl won the 2012 Golden Marc’Aurelio Award at the 2012 Roma Film Festival.
“I could not be more proud to represent Marfa Girl at Cannes,” said Spotlight CEO Matt McCombs.
“Personally, working with Larry means a lot to me. When I was younger Kids was a huge influence on me and my first job in international sales was working on the sales of Larry’s Another Day In Paradise.”
“In my opinion, the true no-holds barred artists in the film industry are so few that you can count them on your fingers,” said Sherman. “Larry is certainly at the top of this list, and it’s been a great pleasure to work with him and learn from him.”
