IFC Midnight in ‘Penumbra’
IFC Midnight snapped up rights in North America, Malaysia and Singapore to Adrian and Ramiro Garcia Bogliano’s thriller “Penumbra” on the heels of the pic’s world preem Thursday at Austin’s Fantastic Fest.
Argentina-set tale centers on a woman who, on the day of a solar eclipse, notices strange happenings that may or may not have something to do with the apartment she’s trying to rent out in a run-down building.
Cristina Brondo, Camila Bordonaba and Berta Muniz star in the pic, which was written and helmed by the Garcia Bogliano brothers (“Cold Sweat”). Horacio and Esteban Mentasti and Alberto Trigo exec produce.
Distribution pact was negotiated by Jeff Deutchman of Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films.
