Grupo iZen will be present at the 2nd edition of Content Americas

Miami is preparing to host Content Americas for the second time, and part of the iZen team and Cacao & Cía (a Latam-based company of the group) will be present at one of the most important markets dedicated to audiovisual content in Latin America and North America.

Among more than 80 applications, "Farruquito, a Flamenco Story" has been selected to participate in the Copro Pitch call where the director of CAPA Spain, Santi Aguado, will defend the project. The feature-length documentary tells the story of the famous flamenco dancer, member of the "Farrucos" family, one of the most important flamenco dynasties in Spain. The pitch will take place on 23 January at 3.30pm (GMT) and can be followed online on the Content Americas website.

Furthermore, iZen's presence in Miami is accentuated with the official announcement of the co-production agreement signed with La Maldita (Malas Decisiones, Decisiones despareja, El Mundo según Roxi) for the production of sound fiction series. "Sueña", a 6x20'' action comedy, is the first series to be produced, and is currently in the development phase led by Lucas Mirvois, Pablo Ferreira and Juliana Barrera.

Juliana Barrera, executive producer of the iZen and Cacao group, says: "We are very happy to start this new creative adventure with La Maldita and explore the unlimited narrative possibilities that sound fiction allows us. Our goal is to create new, fresher and riskier intellectual properties, calling on the best acting talent in our industry, allowing our clients to bet on content already proven in different sound platforms".

Content Americas is a synonym for opportunities for Spanish audiovisual companies attending to sell and distribute their content in the region, which is why Grupo iZen will be present once again this year.
