FEBRUARY 19, 2015 – INDIEPIX FILMS ACQUIRES ROTTERDAM IFF FILM CRUMBS
New York, NY (February 19, 2015) – IndiePix Films announced today that it has acquired all U.S. rights to CRUMBS, a surreal post-apocalyptic sci-fi film from Ethiopea-based Spanish director Miguel Llansó, who makes his feature-length debut with this film. The Spanish-Ethiopean-Finish co-production, which just had its world premiere in the Bright Futures section at the Rotterdam IFF, followed by EFM in Berlin, will continue to play festivals internationally through the summer, and then be released theatrically and across all VOD channels in the third quarter of 2015.
Covering all domestic rights, the distribution deal for CRUMBS, produced by Sergio Uguet de Resayre, was negotiated by Jordan Mattos, Director of Programming for IndiePix Films and Jan Naszewski of Warsaw-based sales outlet, New Europe Film Sales.
Called “outlandish and imaginative” by The Hollywood Reporter, CRUMBS is set against the background of spectacular post-apocalyptic Ethiopian landscapes, where the film finds a strange-looking scrap collector, Gagano (played by the charismatic Daniel Tadesse). Alternately gripped by daydreams and constant fears, the diminutive Gagano has had enough of collecting the priceless crumbs of decayed civilization, including the most valuable: merchandise from Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan. When a spaceship that has been hovering high in the sky for years starts showing signs of activity, Gagano has to overcome his fears – as well as a witch, Santa Claus and second-generation Nazis — to discover things aren’t quite the way he thought.
“Crumbs follows the trail of IndiePix films like Samson & Delilah, Entre Nos and White Shadow; visually arresting stories that are international in scope and give a voice to the underdog,” says Mattos. “As our first science fiction release, we’re excited to bring the film to the attention of US cinephiles and genre enthusiasts alike.”
