interview: Carlos Marques-Marcet
film profile] will have its world debut in the international fiction film category of the American festival South by Southwest (SXSW, in Austin on March 7-16). Made and conceived in Los Angeles and Barcelona (precisely separated by 10,000 km), Carlos Marqués-Marcet’s debut had a last minute sprint and sold international and Spanish distribution rights just a few days before its international premiere.
New York-based agency Visit Films bought rights for the film across the globe, with the exception of Spain, renaming the film for global audiences as Long Distance. Aida LiPera, who directs acquisitions for the company confirmed that the film will “present Carlos Marques-Marcet as one of Spanish cinema’s emerging voices. Through an update of the classical long-distance relationship with the introduction of new technology and new forms of story telling, he was able to capture an increasingly interesting story for the public.”
10,000 km, written by Marqués-Marcet with Clara Roquet, tells the story of Alexandra (Natalia Tena) and Sergi (David Verdaguer), a young and happy couple in Barcelona. One Sunday morning, a piece of news arrives that will change their lives: Alex has been offered a job for a year in Los Angeles. A long distance relationship is born that will put their feelings to the test.
