Madrid-based Kevin Williams Associates is handling international sales on Caribe (Caribbean), the latest music project from revered Spanish director Carlos Saura.
The film marks a reunion between Saura and Seville-based producer Juan
Lebron, with whom he collaborated on Sevillanas and Flamenco.
Saura has long hoped to make a film on the music of the Caribbean. The new film, being put together as a Spanish-Puerto Rican co-production, is set to shoot in Puerto Rico and New York next year.
Legendary cinematographer Vittorio Storaro is set to shoot the film, which will consist of 20 vignettes of Caribbean music including salsa and merengue scenes.
KWA is also handling such new projects as Albert Arizza's serial killer thriller Ramirez and Manuel Gomez Pereira's drama The Hanged Man.
Meanwhile, KWA is representing Gunter Schwaiger's controversial feature-doc
Hafner's Paradise, about an unrepentant ex-SS officer, living in Spain, surrounded by Nazi friends. German buyers are reportedly circling the film, which screened at Locarno in the summer and has been selected by several other festivals, among them Hof and Jerusalem.
Also on KWA's slate is Cuban/Venezuelan melodrama La Edad De La Peseta (The
Silly Age), now selected as Cuba's Oscar candidate. The film, directed by Pavel Giroud, follows a dysfunctional in Havana in 1958, just before the fall of the Baptista regime.
