The Indomina Group has acquired U.S. distribution rights to French director Leos Carax’s HOLY MOTORS, one of the strangest and most divisive films to screen in the main competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The wildly experimental film drew scattered boos but also wild enthusiasm when it screened midway through the festival. The chronicle of a man who spends a day riding around town in a limousine, seemingly changing identities as he goes, the film stars Michel Piccoli, Denis Lavant, Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue. “Leos Carax is a masterful filmmaker,” said Indomina Chairman and CEO Jasbinder Singh Mann in a release announcing the acquisition. “His unique, singular vision is something that cannot be overlooked in today’s marketplace. The film really stays with you after you’ve left the cinema – a testament to not only a brilliant story but amazing direction and performances.” Indomina was launched in 2008 and is based in Los Angeles and in the Dominican Republic. It is involved in the production and distribution of motion pictures, television, music and interactive games, and relies heavily on a transmedia approach.
