MIPCOM Spotlight: Caracol Internacional


CANNES: The book-based production Against Our Destiny, presented by Caracol Internacional, tells the story of two sisters with opposite personalities; one is submissive, shy and insecure, while the other is extroverted, confident and rebellious.

Against Our Destiny is an adaptation of the award-winning novel The Discreet Hero by Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa. Caracol Internacional is showcasing the title to global buyers in Cannes, along with The Girl, about a young female who is trying to readjust to normal life after being forced into guerrilla warfare. There is also The White Slave, a historical period drama set during the years of 1821 and 1843. “Most of [our highlights] are based on true stories, others have great production values with an impressive casting, budget and cinematographic approach,” says Paloma Garcia Cuesta, sales executive for Western Europe and Africa at the company.

She adds, “We are taking the next step to be more recognized as an increasingly important [force] and a big player in the global audiovisual market.”
