Barcelona-based company Eddie Saeta, producer of Marc Recha's Un Certain Regard entry Where Is Madame Catherine' (Les Mains Buides), has boarded Argentine co-production Chong for director Lucho Bender.

The father-son reconciliation tale set in Patagonia will shoot in late 2003 or early 2004. Bender's prior credit is 2000 Gaston Pauls-starrer Merry Christmas (Felicidades).

This will mark just the fourth feature film from Eddie Saeta, also active in advertising, since its 1989 launch by current chief Luis Minarro and director Isabel Coixet, no longer a partner, following Coixet's Things I Never Told You (1996), pseudo-documentary Fuente Alamo (2001) and Madame Catherine.
