Argentina’s Compañia de Cine Swoops on Hot Docs Title ‘Wild Gleaming Space,’ Helmed by Mauro Colombo, Produced by Oscar-Shortlisted Abner Benaim (EXCLUSIVE)

Shot in six countries, Panamanian documentary centers on grief, death and a potential afterlife.

Buenos Aires-based boutique sales outfit Compañía de Cine has acquired international rights to Mauro Colombo’s contemplative second feature, “Wild Gleaming Space,” (“Luminoso Espacio Salvaje”) ahead of its global bow on Wednesday at Toronto’s Hot Docs, which runs April 25 to May 5. Shot in Panama, Chile, Spain, the Netherlands, Italy and Belgium, the film weaves together intimate and resounding first-person accounts from its subjects and dynamic natural backdrops in an ambitious attempt to reach out and document the abstract confluence of life and death. It’s by no means guaranteed that humans can lead a complete and fulfilling life because, often, we fail to notice how we’re swept up in the daily grind, losing touch with an authentic and true feeling.
