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.
