My Imaginary Country

Pyramide International has closed a handful of key pre-sales on Patricio Guzman’s Cannes Special Screenings selection My Imaginary Country (Mi Pais Imaginario) less than two weeks before the festival kicks off.

The France-Chile documentary has sold to New Wave for UK and Ireland, Cineart for Benelux, I Wonder for Italy, and Discovery for former Yugoslavia.

Cannes regular Guzman’s latest film reflects on the social, economic and political impact of the 2019 protests in Santiago. France’s Atacama Productions is the main production company and ARTE France Cinema (France) and Market Chile (Chile) are co-producers.

The acclaimed Chilean documentarian last visited the Croisette with 2019 Special Screening The Cordillera Of Dreams. Nostalgia For The Light played in Special Screenings in 2010, the same year his Salvador Allende premiered out of competition.

Pyramide International’s sales slate also features Critics’ Week entry The Pack (La Jauria) by Colombian filmmaker Andrés Ramírez Pulido.
