Topic Acquires Dan Rubenstein’s Argentinian Drama ‘Noemí Gold’

Topic Acquires Dan Rubenstein’s Argentinian Drama ‘Noemí Gold’
Exclusive: First Look Media’s streaming service Topic has acquired North American rights to the Argentinian film Noemí Gold, written, produced and directed by Dan Rubenstein who also stars. The drama has set to debut on streaming on November 19.

Noemí Gold follows the titular character Noemí Goldberg who, after experiencing what she believes to be an allergic reaction to Misoprostol (commonly known as the abortion pill), seeks out the help of a gynecologist, who promptly reports her to the police. Since attempted abortion is not a prosecutable offense in Argentina, she is not charged with any crime. However, to her dismay, she’s still pregnant. This news coincides with the arrival of Noemí’s estranged cousin from Los Angeles, a social media influencer with millions of followers and dubious talent. With little support from her scatter-brained roommate and self-involved circle of friends, Noemí has only herself to rely on while navigating her present straits.

25 Alternative 2011 Tiff Picks: Milagros Mumenthaler’s Abrir puertas y ventanas

#3. Abrir puertas y ventanas (Back to Stay) Director: Milagros Mumenthaler Cast: María Canale, Martina Juncadella, Ailín Salas, Julían TelloDistributor: Rights Available Buzz: Officially appearing on my radar twice in the same week (when it was being considered the top contender at Olivier Père's Locarno and when took home not only the Golden Leopard but doubled up with a Best Actress award to boot. Mumenthaler's originally titled 'Absences' (workshopped at Cannes' Cinéfondation) is already drawing comparisons with fellow Argentinean Lucrecia Martel -- but worth noting is that this filmmaker grew up on Euro cinema and then made the trek back home for her film studies, so I'm dying to see just what kind of fusion we might have here. The Gist: Set in a bourgeois setting which might recall of Martel's La Ciénaga or young females lounging around in American counterpart Sofia Coppola's work, I look forward in seeing how

Toronto 2011. Discovery Lineup

The Toronto International Film Festival has lined up 25 features for its Discovery program. All the descriptions that follow are from the festival. Additional notes and more are on the way.

Pablo Giorgelli's Las Acacias. A truck driver has been charged with transporting a woman on the long journey from Paraguay's border to the city of Buenos Aires. He is totally unprepared for the extra passenger that will accompany them, the woman's infant daughter Jacinta, whose penetrating gaze eventually disarms his gruff exterior. Subtle and poignant, Giorgelli's 2011 Camera D'Or winner is a movingly beautiful road movie highlighted by stunning performances. (See the Cannes roundup.)

Tomás Lunák's Alois Nebel. Stories from the past and present converge at a small railway in Billy Potok, a tiny village on the Czech-Polish border. The local dispatcher, Alois Nebel, is a loner who prefers old timetables to people and has hallucinations of trains passing

Locarno 2011. Locarno Spreads the Wealth

Above: Milagros Mumenthaler's award-winner, Abrir Puertas y Ventanas.

Locarno is wrapping up its 64th edition tonight with an awards ceremony that spreads the wealth across nine features in the International Competition and the Cinema of the Present. In a year that was notable for several strong debut films, six of the nine awarded films are "opera primas." (Full disclosure: I served on this year's Opera Prima jury, with the Bangkok Post film critic Kong Rithdee and Le Film Francais correspondent Anthony Bobeau.) The Golden Leopard went to Milagros Mumenthaler's exceptionally confident Chekhovian debut, Abrir Puertas y Ventanas, which has been officially titled in English under the very poor Back to Stay, but which is subtitled on the print with the far better Open Doors, Open Windows, which also scored a prize for Maria Canale as best actress—an odd pick in my view, since the film is
