LEADING BOLIVIAN ACTOR and producer Carla Ortiz (pictured) is in Cannes to promote Cinema Libre Studio’s film Olvidados (Forgotten), which features Damian Alcazar as an aging Bolivian General who was involved in Operation Condor, when the US imposed right-wing dictatorships in South America. The film premiered at the Marché du Film on Monday. Cinema Libre Studio is also premiering Can’t Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police, a documentary about the British band, based on the biography of its guitarist Andy Summers. And in Cannes the company has acquired worldwide rights for Rotor DR1, a sci-fi adventure about a 16-year-old boy named Kitch who, in a post-apocalyptic world where most of the population is either dead or missing, he sets out to find his father accompanied by his drone friend DR1. Cinema Libre Studio has also acquired worldwide rights for Aman Called God, a documentary about the St John family and their time spent with a sinister cult in India. Co-director Kristoff St John is known for his role as Neil Winters in the US daytime soap The Young and the Restless.
