Marie Noelle and Peter Sehr's The Anarchist's Wife (Die Frau des Anarchisten) has been selected for Sundance Film Festival's World Cinema Competition in January.
Speaking at a two-day co-production meeting between Catalan and German producers in Berlin, the film's Barcelona-based co-producer Jordi Rediu of Zip Films said that this would be the first film from Spain to be in the Sundance competition.
The story of an undying love set against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War and the Second World War was produced by Munich-based P'Artisan Filmproduktion/Munich with ZIP Films and France's Cine Boissière.
The film stars Maria Valverde, Juan Diego Botto, Nina Hoss, and Jean-Marc Barr.
It is being handled internationally by Bavaria Film International and will be released in Spain by Alta Films on 150 prints on January 23 and then a week later on 80 prints in Germany by Zorro Film.
