BuchScout is happy to announce that “LOS PEQUENOS AMORES” the latest film from Celia Rico who made a splash at the 2018 San Sebastian Festival with “Journey to a Mother’s Room,” has been acquired for international sales by Spain-based Latido Films.
Celia Rico won the Female Scriptwriter’s Residency Berlin – a collaboration between the European Women’s Audiovisual Network (ewa) and BuchScout Agency Berlin – in 2020 and was script advised by Suzanne Pradel.
The film was produced by Barcelona-based Arcadia Motion Pictures.
Rico’s second feature is set in a bucolic countryside. It weighs in as a mother-daughter two-hander sparked after strongly independent mother Ani falls over walking the dog and is forced to use a wheelchair to get around. Daughter Teresa cuts short a vacation to come to her side, their co-habitation grating and revealing multiple – sometime generational – differences as the film peels back the layers of their relation, exposing both women’s ambitions and fears.
Adriana Azores (“Grand Hotel,” “Velvet”) plays Ani, María Vázquez (“Eye for an Eye,” “Offworld”) is Teresa.
Spain-based platform Filmin, RTVE and Catalonia regional pubcaster TVC boarded the project early on in production. Rico’s feature is also backed by Spain’s ICAA and Catalonia’s ICEC, the territories’ film-TV agencies, as well as France’s CNC and European Union’s Media Programm. “Los pequeños amores” is scheduled for release in 2023.
The artistically interesting arthouse movie is an international coproduction directed by Wim Vandekeybus and produced by Bart Van Langendonck (Savage Film). Suzanne Pradel was the script consultant on this project.
