Arclight Films locks North American distribution deal with Gravitas Ventures for CHASING WONDERS

‘CHASING WONDERS’ STARRING PAZ VEGA, EDWARD JAMES OLMOS, QUIM GUTIERREZ, CARMEN MAURA, AND ANTONIO DE LA TORRE

 

Arclight Films’ chairman Gary Hamilton announced today the company has locked distribution in North America for the star-studded coming of age film, Chasing Wonders, starring award-winner Spanish star Paz Vega (Rambo: Last Blood, Sex and Lucia), Academy Award® nominee Edward James Olmos (Blade Runner, Miami Vice), Quim Gutierrez (Spy Time, The Last Days), iconic Almodóvar “girl” and multi award-winner Carmen Maura (Volver, The Women of the 6th Floor), Goya award-winner Antonio de la Torre (The Candidate, The Last Circus), Australia’s Jessica Marais (Love Child, Packed to the Rafters), and introducing the young Michael Crisafulli as Savino. Australian award-winning screenwriter Judy Morris (Happy Feet, Babe: Pig in The City) wrote the screenplay, which was shot over a five-year period.

 

Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studio Company, plans a theatrical and on demand release for June 4, 2021. Arclight Films is handling worldwide sales for the film.

 

Chasing Wonders had its World Premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival last year and has been selected for the Gold Coast Film Festival, where it will screen on April 18th and 22nd.

 

Set in the lush wine country landscapes of Australia and Spain, the heart-warming tale follows 12-year-old Savino, who, encouraged by his maternal grandfather to live a life of hope and possibility, takes off on the adventure of a lifetime to find the magical Emu Plains. His journey leads him to the heart of the human condition - learning to understand our parents' past but not to be defined by it.

 

Chasing Wonders is an uplifting story of familial love and loss and a powerful exploration of the path to understanding and acceptance. This heartwarming film with top international stars and spectacular landscapes is exactly what audiences yearn for. We are thrilled to have our longtime trusted partners at Gravitas Ventures bringing the film to North American audiences and are certain that their team will make this beautiful film shine bright,” said Hamilton.

 

“With an ensemble that includes veteran screen icons alongside exciting new talent, the filmmakers craft an inspiring coming of age story on a canvas of breathtaking vistas across multiple continents. We look forward to North American audiences taking the journey,” said Tony Piantedosi, Vice President of Acquisitions at Gravitas Ventures.

 

Hianlo Films present in association with the South Australian Film Corporation, a Met Film and SLA Films production. Anna Vincent (I Am Mother), Stewart Le Marechal (Swimming with Men), Anna Mohr-Pietsch (Swimming with Men), Hilton Nathanson, and Louise Nathanson are producers. Jonny Persey (The Mercy) and Timothy White (I Am Mother, The Furnace) are Executive Producers.

 

Arclight Films’ current slate of films also includes romantic comedy At Last, starring Academy Award® winner Ellen Burstyn and James Caan; musical dramedy Seriously Red starring Rose Byrne; horror-romance Carmilla which premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival; Twist starring Michael Caine, Lena Heady, and Rita Ora; sports drama Streamline with Jason Isaacs and Levi Miller; Venice Film Festival Official Selection The Furnace; martial arts film The Foggy Mountain; the warmhearted comedy Butter; Here Are the Young Men starring Travis Fimmel, Dean-Charles Chapman, Finn Cole, and Anya Taylor-Joy; Sundance’s critically acclaimed sci-fi thriller Possessor starring Andrea Riseborough, Christopher Abbott, Sean Bean, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, directed by Brandon Cronenberg released on October 2nd in the U.S. by NEON.
