LA-based distributor Vitagraph Films has acquired Spanish Oscar submission Even The Rain (Tambien La Lluvia) from Wild Bunch.

An official selection at Toronto, Bolivia-set Even The Rain charts a director’s difficult journey to shoot a film about the conquest of Latin America. Starring Gael Garcia Bernal, Luis Tosar and Carlos Aduviri, the historical-drama is directed by Icíar Bollaín (Mataharis, Take My Eyes) from a screenplay by Paul Laverty (Route Irish).

The deal was negotiated on Vitagraph’s behalf by European agent, Guy Amon of the Paris-based Leisure and Multimedia Consulting.
