German sales agent M-Appeal picks up José Luis Torres Leiva’s drama

Verano, Leiva’s second feature after El Cielo, La Lluvia y la Terra, which was awarded the FIPRESCI prize at Rotterdam in 2008, explores a day in the life of visitors and workers at a thermal resort in Chile.

Produced by Alicia Scherson (La Ventura), the film gets its world premiere in the Orizzonti section at the Venice Film Festival next month.
