Tales From Mexico Review

Outsider Pictures, with Strand Releasing, has movie obtained U.S. rights to”Tales From Mexico,” an eight-part anthology of all Mexico’s historic challenges, joys and expect to get renewal.The pick-up comes as Paul Hudson’s Outsider pushes into universe sales on Latino titles, acquiring Spaniard Miguel del Arco’s”The Furies,” Mattias Lucchesi’s”El Pampero” and Sebastian Hiriart’s”Carroña,” tapping into a youthful generation of producers and directors from Mexico, Argentina and Spain.

In early sales, Versus Entertainment has taken Spain, and AZ Films closed Canada on”Mexico.” Manufactured by Machete Producciones (“Leap Year,””La jaula de oro”),”Stories From Mexico” is directed by recognized Mexican talent — Carlos Carrera — and new voices: Ernesto Contreras (Sundance winner”I Dream in Another Language”) and Natalia Beristain. The omnibus unspools in precisely the same room starting in 1910, by the Revolution to modern times. Violence and frustration thread many episodes.As for another names that Outsider has acquired,”El Pampero,” produced by Tarea Fina (“Incident Light,””Las Acacias”), marks Lucchessi’s followup to multi-laureled”Natural Sciences.”
