Maya Entertainment, which specializes in movies for Hispanics, has acquired international rights to La Mission, a drama starring Benjamin Bratt.
International rights will be available at the Berlin International Film Festival, which began today.
The film, written and directed by the actor's brother, Peter Bratt, also stars Erika Alexander, Jeremy Ray Valdez, Jesse Borrego, and Talisa Soto.
“Maya Entertainment is very pleased to bring such a well-regarded and critically- acclaimed film to the International market," Elias Axume, EVP, International Distribution for Maya, said in a written statement. “Benjamin Bratt delivers an amazing performance in this film that we believe will resonate with audiences around the globe.”
According to Maya Entertainment, "La Mission tells many stories: that of a man who fights to reconcile the life he thought he had with the one he has; that of a violent but respected father’s turbulent relationship with his gay teenage son; and that of a community with conflicting values struggling to hold onto its history and culture."
The movie is produced by Benjamin Bratt, Peter Bratt, and Alpita Patel and executive produced by Tom Steyer, Kat Taylor, and Dan Nelson. The deal was negotiated by Christine D’Souza of Preferred Content on behalf of the producers, and by Elias Axume on behalf of Maya.
The movie is available on DVD.
