‘Memory,’ ‘Serpent,’ ‘Truman,’ ‘Magallanes’ Vie For Platino Glory

By 17:34:00

Matías Bize’s “The Memory of Water,” Salvador del Solar’s “Magallanes,” Ciro Guerra’s “Embrace of the Serpent” and Cesc Gay’s “Truman” figure among 20 Platino Award best pic nomination candidates announced Thursday at a press-conference in Santo Domingo.

Pablo Trapero’s “The Clan,” Pablo Larrain’s “The Club,” Federico Veiroj’s “The Apostate” and Paula Ortiz’s “The Bride” also made the best pic cut for the third Platino kudofest, awards aimed at highlighting talent and movies from Latin America, Spain and Portugal.

Starring Elena Anaya and Benjamín Vicuña as a couple battling to overcome the loss of their small son, “Memory” competed at 2015’s Venice Days and took the Silver Colon at Spain’s Huelva Fest. Sold by Germany’s Global Screen, it most recently received plaudits from critics and audiences at this week’s Latin American Fest in Lleida, Spain.

Handled by Filmax Intl., melancholy friendship dramedy “Truman” has swept awards at multiple events this season. Produced by Spain’s Impossible Films, the seventh feature of Cesc Gay is co-produced out of Argentina by K & S and Telefonica Studios/Telefe, two shingles behind Damian Szifron’s “Wild Tales” — which swept the 2nd Platino Awards — and “The Clan” — also in the running this year.
