Chris Eska's first feature "August Evening" has been acquired by Moctesuma Esparza's upstart distribution company Maya Entertainment, in a deal signed after the film's debut this week at the Los Angeles Film Festival. The LAFF competition title is the story of an undocumented worker and his widowed daughter-in-law dealing with a tragedy. "We're excited to launch our distribution division with a beautiful film like 'August Evening'," said Esparza, compay co-chairman and CEO, in a statement. "We're confident it will satisfy both traditional art house audiences and break through to the mainstream Latino market, achieving both critical and financial success." Glen Reynolds of Circus Road Films negotiated the deal on behalf of the film's producer with Moctesuma Esparza and Jose Martinez, Jr. from Maya. [Eugene Hernandez]
