2013 Fantastic Market project TATEWARI has found an associate producer.
Director Edgar Nito presented the feature film project TATEWARI at the inaugural 2013 edition of Fantastic Market | Mercado Fantastico. The jury, which consisted of Tim League, Robert Rodriguez, Harry Knowles, and Elijah Wood, awarded TATEWARI the market's Bronze Award. The project is described as follows:
Two young American students, and a Canadian girl venture into the Mexican desert to try peyote under the guidance of a Huichol shaman. Not knowing that his mystical journey is about to become a nightmare.
We are pleased to announce that Screen Division has boarded the project as an associate producer and will also assist with script development on the project. The deal was made at the Guadalara Film Market in March 2014.
TATEWARI is one of numerous projects to find partners or support at last year's edition of Fantastic Market. If you would like to participate in the 2014 market, we are accepting submissions for pitches and works-in-progress until May 31, 2014.
