Spanish distribution house Sogepaq will handle international sales on San Sebastian International Film Festival competition entry Mondays In The Sun (Los Lunes Al Sol).
Directed by Fernando Leon (Barrio), the film stars Spanish actor Javier Bardem (Before Night Falls, The Dancer Upstairs) as an unemployed man struggling alongside his peers to make ends meet.
Sun is a co-production of Elias Querejeta and Jaume Roures (MediaPro) with France's Quo Vadis Cinema, Italy's Eyescreen and Spain's Television de Galicia. The film premieres next month in San Sebastian prior to a September 27 release in Spain.
Other new Sogepaq titles debuting at the MIFED market are Imanol Uribe's Civil War-era coming of age tale Carol's Journey (El Viaje De Carol) and Enrique Urbizu's thriller Box 507 (La Caja 507) starring Goya Toledo (Amores Perros).
