Distributor acquires North American rights to Israel Cárdenas & Laura Amelia Guzmán’s drama starring Geraldine Chaplin.

Sand Dollars

Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired North American rights to Sand Dollars.

Written and directed by Israel Cárdenas and Laura Amelia Guzmán, the drama centres on an older European woman who becomes enchanted with a young Dominican woman struggling to make ends meet.

Sand Dollars premiered at Toronto last year and stars Geraldine Chaplin. A theatrical release at the end of 2015 is planned.

Breaking Glass co-president Richard Ross commented: “The film is a gorgeous meditation on old age, loneliness and love, anchored by a luminous performance by the exquisite Geraldine Chaplin. We’ve been pursuing the film since TIFF and Ventana Sur and are overjoyed to bring its beauty to North American audiences.”

“We couldn’t be happier to partner with Breaking Glass on Sand Dollars. They have the sensibility we were looking for,” added Sandro Fiorin, vice president of FiGa Films, LLC.
