Genre sales company Devilworks will introduce four titles to buyers at Cannes this year, one of which is visited by The Devil himself.
Sacred Heart, produced and directed by Kosta Nikas, which stars Chopper actor David Field in “The tale of a man who receives a visit from the devil after losing his wife and child.”
Dennis Ho’s feature debut A Better Place, pictured, “Tells the story of a young man who uses his abnormal regenerative powers to heal people, despite the cost to himself.”
The film has already picked up prizes at Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival (best independent film, emerging actor for star Stephen Todt), and the Los Angeles Movie Awards (Best Narrative Feature).
Also on the slate is Jennifer Liao’s debut feature, the comic thriller End Of Days, Inc, which “Follows a group of laid-off employees who discover that processing the last of their inventory will lead to catastrophic consequences.”
Devilworks has also picked up world rights to Massimo Natale’s Double Crossing (Il Traduttore), which stars The Passion Of The Christ actor Claudia Gerini alongside Kamil Kula in, “The story of a young student who becomes entangled in a passionate affair with an older woman.”
Devilworks president Samantha Richardson said: ‘’These titles all display intelligence and captivating cinema; they really stand apart, which is predominant in a market as hungry as Cannes.”
