BD Cine, Rizoma set ‘Air’
Friday, September 28th, 2012

BD Cine and Rizoma, two driving forces behind new Argentinean cinema, are teaming for the first time to produce Open Air, helmed by Anahí Berneri (It’s Your Fault).

Written by Berneri and Javier Van de Courten, Open Air turns on a couple whose shared
dreams are fading. They plan on rebuilding their relationship by renovating an out-of-town
house. But, without realizing it, they begin to live separate lives.

Skedded to shoot in the Argentinean spring of 2013, “Open Air” is “a romantic film about
the end of youth, one which will encourage audiences to identify with its strong characters”, Berneri told sales agents and producers at San Sebastian Fest’s 1st Europe-Latin America Coproduction Forum Thursday.

Berneri and Van de Courten have completed a second draft of their screenplay.

Each putting up 50% of finance, Rizoma and BD Cine will cover 70% of Air’s about Euros850,000 ($1.1 million) budget out via Argentinean subsidies and Latin America distribution deals, said Dubcovsky, who runs BD Cine with Daniel Burman.

Rizoma holds down a Warner Bros. distribution deal for Latin America, BD Cine one
via Disney, plus a Latin American pay TV deal with Lap TV.

The two partners are in San Sebastian to tap a European co-producer to cover 20%-30%
of the budget, plus a sales agent.

“We’re very good friends and wanted to work together”, Rizoma founder Hernán Musaluppi
said at San Sebastian.

“Also, together, we have good commercial deals which will allow us to distribute the film
better”, he added.

Musaluppi produced Martin Rejtman’s Silvia Prieto and Pablo Trapero’s Mundo Grua through to El custodio and Gustavo Tarreto’s Medianeras.

BD Cine has produced all Daniel Burman’s films, including Berlin double Silver Bear winner Lost Embrace.
