MISSION


From Barcelona, Madrid and NYC offices we produce for international audiences.

SOUND & FURY


We are developing the new projects of European Film Awards nominee Laura Ferrés ('The disinherited') and Álvaro Brechner, recognised director by Cannes, Venice and San Sebastián Film Festivals ('A twelve-year night', 'Kaplan', 'Bad day to go fishing'). We count with the collaboration of BAFTA Award winner, Clara Roquet ('The goodbye'); Goya Best Screenplay Award winner, Tomás Aragay ('Truman') and the dramatist Ivor Martinic ('My son just walks a little bit slower'), among others.

"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."
