French sales company Coach 14 has announced its line-up heading into the Cannes Film Festival.
The company boasts Critics Week title La Sangre Brota, a second film from Pablo Fendrik. Fendrik's first film, El Asaltante, ran in Critics Week last year.
Coach's Pape Boye says the director is a 'sure thing, an immense talent.' As with Fendrik's last film, the action in Sangre Brota takes place in the space of a day and focuses on the violent struggles inside one family. Arturo Goetz, Nahuel P. Biscayart, Guillermo Arengo, Ailin Salas, Stella Galazzi and Guadalupe Docampo star.
Also on Coach's slate is Rated R, a story of three actresses looking for fame within the context of post-Franco Spain.
Boye calls it ' Boogie Nights , but on the girls' side.' The film will be ready in the autumn and is directed by Dunia Ayaso and Felix Sabroso.
Carre Blanc is a first film by Jean-Baptiste Leonetti. Sami Bouajila, Julie Gayet, Jean-Pierre Andreani, Dominique Paturel and Carlos Leal star in the drama set in a dark and chilling future where the weak do not survive. The film boasts the editing talents of Children Of Men editor Alex Rodriguez who will also work on Leonetti's next project.
Also new to Coach's slate is 7.5 Steps by Lalo Garcia. The debut film stars Ernesto Alterio, Ingrid Rubio, Pere Arquillue and Sancho Gracia and tells the story of two childhood friends who try, perilously, to change their lives.
Other films in the line up include Edoardo Winspeare's Gentlemen , Isidro Ortiz's Shiver , Guillermo Groizard's Project Two and three films Coach is co-selling with Orly Films: Alain Resnais' Les Herbres Folles , Claude and Nathan Miller's Je Suis Heureux Que Ma Mere Soit Vivante and Francis Huster's Un Homme Et Son Chien .
