Deals closed on the UK independent feature [pictured] with Metrodome and X-Verleih AG.

Spanish sales outfit Imagina has confirmed details of sales on its UK independent feature, Day of the Flowers, co-starring ballet superstar Carlos Acosta.

Deals have been closed with distributors Metrodome in the UK and Germany’s X-Verleih AG, for theatrical release in both countries later in the year.

Shot on location in Cuba, Flowers follows two Scottish sisters, Eva Birthistle as the hot headed Rosa and Charity Wakefield as her fashionista sibling, as they travel to lay the ashes of their father. 

The film is billed as a comical tale of cross-cultural misunderstandings and illusions.

Flowers is helmed by BAFTA winning director, John Roberts and Produced by Jonathan Rae for Rogue Elephant Pictures. 

Imagina’s COO, Géraldine Gonard, anticipates strong international interest in the film after handling similar cross-cultural hits, with Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger along with work from other filmmakers such as Isabel Coixet and Fernando León de Aranoa.
