SPANISH COMPANY UNVEILS FEAR FARE
Variety reports that Rodar y Rodar, a production company based in Barcelona, Spain, has established the Esta Vivo! banner to produce movies by new young filmmakers. Some of these are or will be genre features; the most notable is Guillem Morales? EL HABITANTE INCIERTO (THE UNCERTAIN GUEST), which just won the Best Actress award for M?a Lopez at Sitges, and is about a young architect who comes to suspect that a mysterious man is living in his house. Also on the Esta Vivo! slate are Jose Antoino Bayona?s ghost story EL ORFANATO and Irene Arzuaga?s JUEGO DE RATAS, a suspense thriller set in a morgue. The overall goal of Esta Vivo! is to make movies that are decidedly Spanish in feel; no U.S. distribution deals have been announced yet for any of the features made under the banner.
