Oration Films arrives in Berlin with four new titles including a couple that earned plaudits from international festivals led by Martin Kraut’s Argentinian euthanasia drama and recent Rotterdam premiere The Dose (La Dosis).
“With very contemporary themes involving euthanasia and with the erotic and philosophic tensions driving its two male nurse main characters, La Dosis is a film with multiple points of entry for audiences,” said Oration CEO Timothy O’Brien.
Oration has also launched talks on Jun Robles Lana’s Kalel, 15 from the Philippines, winner of the best director award at Tallinn Black Nights last year for its story of a 15-year-old HIV positive boy set against the youth AIDS crisis in The Philippines.
Michał Szcześniak’s Polish thriller Fisheye is in post-production and centres on a medical researcher kidnapped on her way to work only to find herself the victim of what seems to be an experiment to torture her with secrets from her past.
Rounding out the quartet is Allen Gardner’s US horror comedy Cold Feet about a bachelor party beset by snipers and a ghost. Oration Films handles worldwide rights on the films.
