Filmax International has closed a pair of major territory deals on its romantic thriller Agnosia, from the producers of The Orphanage and Pan’s Labyrinth.

Momentum has snapped up rights for the UK and Canada, while SquareOne Entertainment will release the film in Germany.

Eugenio Mira is directing the $8.2m Spanish-language project, which is in post-production and likely to make its debut in the autumn. It is scripted by Antonio Trashorras (The Devil’s Backbone) and is being produced by Alvaro Augustin, MA Faura and Isaac Torras.

Agnosia is about a young woman who suffers from a neuropsychological illness that affects her perception. Although her eyes and ears are in perfect condition, her brain cannot interpret the stimuli she receives through them.

Eduardo Noriega, Barbara Goenaga and Martina Gedeck star.
