Film Movement nabs 'Alamar'

Spanish-language father-son drama is Berlin's opening pic

Film Movement has acquired U.S. rights to Pedro Gonzalez-Rubio's father-son drama "Alamar," which will be the opening night feature of the Generation section of the upcoming Berlin Film Festival.

The Spanish-language film, which is currently screening in competition at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, will open theatrically at New York's Film Forum on July 14 with a limited national roll-out to follow.

The acquisition was negotiated by Film Movement's Adley Gartenstein and Rebeca Conget, and MK2's Matthieu Giblin.
