FilmSharks gets Distribution for Altioklar Film


Guido Rud's Buenos Aires-based sales company FilmSharks Intl. is showing its teeth, gobbling intl. distribution rights on Turkish psychothriller "Shattered Soul"

"Our aim is to acquire high-profile independent films, especially at early stages of production, from Argentina and anywhere else in the world," Rud told Daily Variety.

Helmed by Mustafa Altioklar and produced by Mehmet Altioklar, "Shattered Soul" signals an attempt by younger Turkish filmmakers to move into U.S.-style genre and f/x, boasting gruesome procedurals, a serial killer plot and multiple-personality plotting.
