film profile] (winner of the special jury prize in Rome in 2009 and David di Donatello for Best Film in 2010 – due out in France on January 16, 2013 via Bellissima Films) is to make its world premiere in the World Dramatic Competition at the next Sundance Film Festival (from January 17 to 27, 2013) and is to be distributed in France at a so far unconfirmed date by Wild Bunch Distribution.
The team managed by Adeline Fontan-Tessaur and Eva Diederix also has another title that is to compete at the festival (but in the American section) in its line-up: Cheren Dabis’ May in the Summer. Two-part Indian film Gangs of Wasseypur, for which Elle Driver started fruitful sales at the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes, is also to be screened at Sundance, in the Spotlight programme.
The rest of Elle Driver’s line-up is to include, among others, the following works in post-production: Rebecca Zlotoswki’s Grand Central (with Léa Seydoux and Tahar Rahim), Emmanuelle Bercot’s On My Way (with Catherine Deneuve), Fabien Constant’s documentary Mademoiselle C (behind the scenes at Vogue Paris and in the steps of Carine Roitfeld who was its editor-in-chief for ten years), as well as Amir Galván and Vanessa Arreola’ La cuarta compañía, a Mexican-Spanish co-production whose story is set in 1979, in the Santa Martha prison, one of the world's most violent.
