LatinoBuzz: Pantelion's First Coproduction with Dominican Republic's Lantica Pictures

Lantica Pictures, the former Indomina, is in post on their first project under the multi-picture agreement with Pantelion Films announced this past 2014
Cannes. Pantelion Films will head up domestic and international distribution through the second partnership agreement between the two companies.

“Cómplices,” (Accomplices)  which is now in advanced post-production stage, is a romantic comedy which marks the company’s first Dominican-shot film under the multi-picture deal signed with
Pantelion Films.The film tells the story of an uncle who is forced to take his despondent nephew under his wing as they go on an exotic adventure to the Dominican Republic. The
movie was directed by Luis Eduardo Reyes and produced by Leo Zimbrón, producer of the Mexican hit “Pulling Strings,” with Sandra Condito and Lantica
Pictures, Lantica Media’s production company. “Cómplices” features Mexican actors Arath De La Torre and Jesús Zavala as well as
Dominican stars Liche Ariza, Paula Ferry, Sharlene Taulé and Claudette Lalí.

“The completion of principal photography on our first project under the multi-picture agreement with Pantelion Films is an achievement of which we are
quite proud,” commented Antonio Gennari, CEO of Lantica Media. “It’s another step
forward in strengthening the Dominican film industry and allowing the world to see what we have to offer”.

Paul Presburger, CEO of Pantelion Films added, “We had a wonderful experience working with Lantica Pictures and their team. We look forward to continuing
to produce great films in the Dominican Republic with Lantica Media​.”

“Cómplices” was produced entirely in the Dominican Republic, taking advantage of the diverse range of locations the country has to offer, as well as the powerful
incentives provided by the country’s Cinema Law.
