Malaga Competition Title ‘Nina’ Goes International Via Filmax

Filmax has acquired international rights to Andrea Jaurrieta's Spanish thriller “Nina,” which unspools in competition at the Malaga Film Festival.

Filmax has acquired international rights to Spanish thriller “Nina,” the new feature written and directed by Andrea Jaurrieta (“Ana by Day”) that bows at this week’s Málaga Film Festival as one of its higher profile titles in main competition. Loosely based on the play of the same name by José Ramón Fernández, which borrows elements of Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull,” “Nina” tells the story of a woman, an actress, who returns to her home town on Spain’s rugged northern coast seeking to take revenge on a celebrated writer. I could talk about Douglas Sirk in the use of colors and staging, about Hitchcock’s ‘Vertigo,’ about Juan Antonio Bardem’s ‘Calle Mayor’… In short, ‘Nina’ is a film that supposedly looks towards the genre, purely cinematographic and especially classic cinema.”
