Madrid-based sales agent Kevin Williams Associates (KWA) has just picked up world-wide distribution rights to two new Spanish pictures: Astronautas and La Flaqueza Del Bolchevique.
Santi Amodeo's Astronautas is a bittersweet comedy about an alcoholic artist who gets back onto the straight and narrow with the help of a young girl. The film, which stars Nancho Novo and Teresa Hurtado, won a Special Mention at the Valladolid Film Festival last week.
Astronautas is produced by Tesela, the company behind Spanish hit El Bola and Toronto title November, both directed by Achero Manas.
KWA has also bolstered its MIFED slate with La Flaqueza Del Bolchevique (literally, The Weakness Of The Bolshevik).
Directed and written by newcomer Manuel Martin Cuenca, the picture is based on Lorenzo Silva's prize-winning novel, and tells the story of a love affair between an older man and a teenage girl in modern-day Madrid.
Produced by Sapin's Rioja Films, the film co-stars Luis Tosar and Maria Valverde.
KWA's MIFED sales slate also includes Oliver Stone's Fidel Castro documentary Commandante, and Vincente Aranda's Euros 10m Spanish-UK-Italian erotic film, Carmen, which stars Paz Vega (Sex And Lucia).
