EXCLUSIVE: Bac inks trio of deals on Paolo Virzi drama at market.
Bac Films continues to see strong demand for Paolo Virzi drama Human Capital with deals closing at the EFM with UK (Arrow), Germany (Movienet) and Australia (Hi Gloss Entertainment).
UK and Australian deals closed on Saturday evening. Bac is in discussions with US buyers.
Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Valeria Golino, Fabrizio Bentivoglio, Luigi Lo Cascio and Fabrizio Gifuni star in Virzi’s drama, which charts the destinies of two families irrevocably tied together after a cyclist is hit by a jeep.
Rai has recently raked in more than €5m in Italy on the film which Bac has sold well since AFM.
Arrow’s acquisition director Tom Stewart told Screen: “Arrow Films are delighted to be able to bring such a smartly executed thriller to the UK/Eire shores later in 2014 and to be finally collaborating with the great team at Bac Films.”
Also on Bac’s EFM slate are The Quiet Roar, El Ardor, Run, The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears and Fool Circle.
