MK2 presents Going South and The Mouth of the Wolf
Including French, Italian, UK, Mexican and Iranian films, French international seller MK2 will present a promising and highly diverse line-up next week at the European Film Market at the 60th Berlinale (February 11-21).
The team headed by Mathilde Henrot will be hoping for success with its French title selected in the Panorama section: Sébastien Lifshitz’s road movie Going South [+see also:

MK2 International’s Berlin line-up also includes Italian director Pietro Marcello’s The Mouth of the Wolf [+see also:

Market premieres will include Alastair Siddons’ UK documentary Turn It Loose, and Christophe Blanc’s French/Belgian co-production White As Snow (see news). The latter, a thriller starring François Cluzet and Olivier Gourmet, will be launched in French theatres by MK2 Diffusion on March 17.
Successful deals also look set to be struck with Pedro González-Rubio’s Mexican film To the Sea, which will open the Generation section at Berlin, after its North American premiere in the Visions section at Toronto and its current appearance in competition at Rotterdam.
At Berlin, MK2 will continue pre-sales for three French titles in post-production with their sights set on Cannes: Abdellatif Kechiche’s Black Venus (see news); Abbas Kiarostami’s The Certified Copy, starring Juliette Binoche; and Charles De Meaux’s Stretch, whose cast includes Nicolas Cazalé (Shooting Star 2008), Nicolas Duvauchelle, Fan Bing Bing and David Carradine in his final role.
