We are very happy to show the first stills from REY by Niles Atallah shot in Araucania, Chile.
In 1860, a French lawyer dreamt of becoming the King of Patagonia. And he did become just that. Or so it seems.
Rey participated at the Cinefondation L’Atelier in the Cannes Film Festival in May, 2013. The project received a Production Award in the Framework program of the Torino Film Lab in November 2012. The project also participated in the CPH:FORUM in Copenhagen and the rivieraLAB at the Riviera Maya Film Festival in Mexico. In 2011, Rey participated in the Binger Writer’s Lab in Amsterdam and the Script & Pitch and Framework workshop at the Torino Film Lab.
Rey is supported by the Hubert Bals Fund, Amiens Screenplay Development Support, the Torino Film Lab and Chilean Corfo development grant. It received the Torino Film Lab Production Award, Hubert Bals Fund, production support from NRW and l’Aide aux Cinémas du Monde from the French CNC.
