Studio Indie Capital Partners is travelling to Bucarest

Studio Indie Production is in charge of the new film by Jesús del Cerro which was shot in Romania


In the wake of the new Romanian cinema, “Uruguay” is a beautiful love story packed with thrill and excitement in the city of Bucharest.

“URUGUAY” is the seventh film from Spanish director and producer Jesús del Cerro. It is a cross-generational story set in Nicolae Ceaucescu’s communist Romania. The film develops around the lives of humble working-class Andrei and his family in the city of Bucharest. It was shot in February 2016, four weeks in Bucharest and one more week on the bank of the Danube, in Orsova, Romania.
Jesús del Cerro directed, produced and wrote this film along with actor and producer Dragos Bucur and the help of Centrul National al Cinematografiei (CNC). Dragos Bucur (Andrei) and actress Cristina Flutur (Ioana) played the main roles. The script was co-written with Manuel Feijoo, Beatriz González Cruz and Ruxandra Ghitescu.
DRAGOS BUCUR (Andrei) is one of the most highly regarded actors in Romania, having worked in more than thirty films and been awarded several prizes for best actor, including two GOPO, one BAFIC, three UCIN and the “Timica” Prize at the Young Actor Gala. Dragos is also a producer, and has produced films like ‘Doua Luzuri”, co-produced with Studio Indie, or ‘LoveBuilding’. He has also worked in international productions like `The Way Back’, directed by Peter Weir and ‘Wallander’ with Kenneth Branagh.
CRISTINA FLUTUR (Iona) made an extraordinary debut in 2012 in the film ‘Más allá de las colinas’ playing Alina Ringhis. She won the Best Actress Award for her performance in this film at Cannes Film Festival in 2012.
JESÚS DEL CERRO (Director) is a Spanish director and producer based both in Madrid and Bucharest. His previous films include ‘Carlitos y el Campo de los Sueños’ winner of Best Film and the Audience Award in Giffoni (the most important children and youth film festival in the world); ‘Nasa’ (winner of the GOPO, Romanian film best box-office in 2012) or ‘S-a Furat Mireasa’ (‘Han Robado a la Novia’). His TV series include ‘Un paso Adelante’, the most international Spanish series which has been sold to more than 60 countries; ‘Policías, en el corazón de la calle’; ‘Médico de Familia’ or ‘Compañeros’.
Synopsis: the story takes place in 1988, in Nicolae Ceaucescu’s communist Romania, one of the bloodiest dictatorships in the Soviet bloc. Andrei and his family live in Bucharest, in a small Government-owned apartment. Every day, Vasile, Andrei’s father, expects to get a message but nothing ever comes. One day, the family gets a letter from Uruguay… Is it the message he longed for so much?

The film is currently being edited and is expected to be ready by the end of the year. The production company intends to show it at festivals in early 2017 and then release it at the end of the year.

Newcomers to the American Film Market

Please write to arrange a meeting if you want to learn more about our 35% tax incentive for foreign productions shot in the Canaries
