Sony Co-Producing Pablo Trapero's 'La Quietud' as First-Ever Argentine Feature
The thriller, starring Berenice Bejo, Martina Gusman and Edgar Ramirez, is Trapero's follow-up to his critically acclaimed 'El Clan,' which was a box-office hit in Argentina.
Sony Pictures International Productions (SPIP), the local-language production arm of Sony Pictures, has come on board La Quietud, the new feature from El Clan director Pablo Trapero, as its first-ever Argentine co-production.
Sony Pictures Releasing International will distribute the film in the U.S. as well as Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and Chile, and will take TV rights for the title across Latin America. Wild Bunch will handle international sales.
In the intimate thriller, Martina Gusman (Lion’s Den) and Berenice Bejo (The Artist) star as two sisters who try to achieve closure on their common troubled past. Edgar Ramirez (Gold) co-stars. Trapero’s Matanza Cine shingle is co-producing La Quietud together with Argentine's Telefe and SPIP.
Trapero's last feature, El Clan, earned best director honors at the Venice Film Festival in 2015 and was a box-office hit in Argentine.
"We couldn't be happier that this is our first picture in Argentina,” said Laine Kline, executive vp, Sony Pictures International Productions. “A brilliant auteur like Pablo and a project like La Quietud perfectly represent the caliber of talent and high-quality aesthetic we are supporting in the region.”
La Quietud has already begun shooting in Buenos Aires.
