EXCLUSIVE: Berlin-based sales outfit Films Boutique has just snapped up worldwide sales rights to My Name Is Hmmm, the debut feature from French fashion designer Agnès Troublé (better known to the outside world as Agnès B.)
The film, starring Sylvie Testud, Douglas Gordon and Jacques Bonnaffé, should be ready by the end of the year.
Meanwhile, Films Boutique has also taken sales rights to The Passion Of Michelangelo, the new feature from Chilean director Esteban Larrain.
The political drama is set in Chile in 1983, when the first street protests against General Pinochet’s military dictatorships were made. When a teenage boy from a rural village claims that he can see and talk to the Virgin Mary, the church sends a priest to investigate whether this is a real miracle or political manipulation. The film is being targeted at the autumn festivals.
Also new on the Films Boutique slate is Becoming Traviata, a feature doc by Philippe Béziat starring world famous French Soprano Natalie
Dessay, the London Symphony Orchestra & the Estonian Philharmonic Choir. Produced by Philippe Martin (Les films Pelleas), the film follows Desssay from the first rehearsals until the premiere of Verdi’s masterpiece under the direction of Jean-François Sivadier.
The film will be ready later this summer.
