'Crystal Fairy' Lands at Content
Content has acquired "Crystal Fairy" for all international rights, excluding Chile, and will be representing the film at this week's Berlinale.
The film had it's world premiere in Sundance where the director Sebastian Silva won the director's award in the World Dramatic Cinema section. The road trip comedy stars Michael Cera ('Juno', 'Superbad'), Gaby Hoffman ('Sleepless in Seattle', 'Field of Dreams') and the Silva brothers, Juan, Jose and Agustin.
Produced by Juan de Dios Larrain and Pablo Larrain (producers of 2013 Oscar nominee 'No'), the film takes us to Chile where self-centered Jamie (Cera) and his friends set off on a wild road trip to experience the legendary hallucinogenic San Pedro cactus. The earth loving, free spirited Crystal Fairy (Gabby Hoffman) joins the gang against Jamie's wishes, and the hilarious adventure of psychedelic soul searching begins.
UTA Independent Film Group negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers with Content’s Harry White.
Producer Juan de Dios Larrain said: “This is a story about friends, and humor is the driver. We had a lot of fun working on it. Now its time to present ‘Crystal Fairy’ to the international world, and we are delighted Content has come on board.”
IFC Films has the rights in North America.
