Sundance Selected ‘The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be Quiet’ Acquired by Luxbox
Announced on Tuesday as one of 10 films playing the 2021 Sundance World Cinema Dramatic Competition, “El Perro Que No Calla” (“The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be Quiet”), from distinguished Argentine auteur Ana Katz, has been acquired by Paris-based Luxbox.

A doyen of French sales agents of Latin American films, handling high-profile, multi-prized art titles such as Benjamín Naishtat’s “Rojo” and Marcelo Martinessi’s “The Heiresses,” Luxbox will handle international sales rights to “The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be Quiet.”

A midlife coming of age comedy-drama come political parable, “The Dog Who Wouldn’t Be Quiet” turns on Sebastian, in his 30s, devoted to his loyal dog, who haltingly initiates adulthood, navigating love, loss and fatherhood.

A road movie, charting a physical and inner journey which Solomonoff calls “metaphysical,” “Thirst” takes the lorry driver from Patagonia to the Pampas and on to villages in a sub-tropical jungle.
