Screen can exclusively reveal the first international trailer for Neus Ballus’ Catalan comedy-drama The Odd-Job Men, which has been selected for Locarno’s international competition and Toronto’s Contemporary World Cinema strand.
The film follows three handymen who spend a week going from door-to-door in Barcelona to fix whatever is broken, and stars Mohamed Mellali, Valero Escolar and Pep Sarra.
Ballus, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Margarita Melgar, previously directed 2019 Berlin Panorama title Staff Only and 2013 debut The Plague, selected in Berlin’s Forum.
The Odd-Job Men is produced by Distinto Films and co-produced by El Kinograf. Beta Cinema is handling international sales.
