Certified Copy and On the Road shine in MK2’s line-up
by Fabien Lemercier
10/05/2010 - Despite the fact Abdellatif Kechiche’s Black Venus has not been selected (it is still in the editing phase, while pre-sales continue), French international seller MK2 will present an impressive line-up at the Film Market at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival, which opens on Wednesday.
Mathilde Henrot’s team will sell another film included in Official Selection: Chinese director Jia Zhang-Ke’s documentary I Wish I Knew, to be unveiled in the Un Certain Regard section. Also on the slate is Louis Garrel’s 43-minute short Petit Tailleur, featuring Léa Seydoux and selected in the Directors’ Fortnight.
MK2 will also launch pre-sales for Brazilian filmmaker Walter Salles’s On the Road, which is adapted from Jack Kerouac’s cult novel and stars Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart. The film, which is about to enter production, is piloted by MK2 in collaboration with Film4 (UK) and Videofilmes (Brazil).
Among the titles in post-production, MK2 will start sales for Gérald Hustache-Mathieu’s Nobody Else But You (see news); and Guillaume Nicloux’s Holiday (see news). Meanwhile, the team will continue sales for Charles De Meaux’s Stretch.
Finally, there will be market screenings of The Mouth of the Wolf [trailer, film focus] by Italy’s Pietro Marcello, Going South [trailer] by Sébastien Lifshitz, To the Sea by Mexico’s Pedro González-Rubio, and Christophe Blanc’s French/Belgian thriller White As Snow [trailer].
