However, one of Ondamax's biggest projects, $4 million Captains Of The Sands, a City of God-style drama about homeless kids in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil, won't be ready for Berlin. Cannes looks like a more likely destination for the film - which is currently four weeks into shooting.
Ondamax is also getting into the animation game, handling Otto Guerra's 2D animated feature Vogue In D Minor, a Brazil/Canada co-production based on the musical play Tango And Tragedy.
Here in Santa Monica, Ondamax is pushing Mexican drama Teo's Journey, a drama about a boy searching for his father on the border between Mexico and the US, and Rodrigo Bellot's Perfidy, a Chile-Bolivia-US co-production. Another Ondamax title, Brian Petersen's crime drama Coyote, about people-smuggling on the Mexican-US border, has now found a US home: it will be released in the US by Maya Releasing.
