Lucía Puenzo will be thrilling U.S. audiences in the near future…
Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the 39-year-old Argentinian author and director’s latest film The German Doctor.
Puenzo’s thriller was nominated for the Un Certain Regard Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival under the Argentinian title Wakolda.
The film is based on Puenzo’s novel about the search for notorious Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, who hid in South America.
Starring Natalia Oreiro and Diego Peretti, the film is based on the true story of an Argentinian family that unwittingly puts their daughter under the care of the monster.
Samuel Goldwyn Films will release the film in the spring.
