Recently unveiled and having proved popular at the Thessaloniki Film Festival, the Franco-Greek co-production Blind Sun [+] has just been added to the slate of Paris-based international sales agent Reel Suspects. The feature debut by Joyce A Nashawati, the plot of which subtly plays with a strained and paranoia-riddled atmosphere exacerbated by a heatwave, was acquired by the company managed by Matteo Lovadina at the fifth Paris International Fantastic Film Festival (17-22 November), where the title was in competition. It is also worth mentioning that the film will be distributed in French theatres by Pretty Pictures(date TBC).
Reel Suspects will officially launch sales for Blind Sun next week in Buenos Aires, at the seventh edition of Ventana Sur (30 November–4 December). At the film market, Lovadina’s team will also be banking on screenings of Demon [+] by late Polish director Marcin Wronaand Finnish feature Lovemilla [+] by Teemu Nikki in order to entice buyers.
