Company Profile

BOWFINGER INTERNATIONAL PICTURES, was created in 2004 by the hand of María Luisa Gutiérrez, producer and actual president of the spanish state film association “Asociación Estatal de Cine de España” (A.E.C.), and the director, producer, hosting and actor Santiago Segura. 

 

Dedicated to film production, Bowfinger International Pictures develops films to the national and international market with one clear bet: the combination of quality and commercialisation. 

Actually we have a catalogue of 30 feature films, in them we could find some of the greatest successes of the spanish cinema like the Torrente saga or the latest successes of “Padre no hay más que uno” or “Padre no hay mas que uno 2. La llegada de la suegra”, that has passed the two million of viewers turning into the most box office movies of 2019 and 2020. In the last years, Bowfinger International Pictures also has strengthened its international  expansion  with the production and coproduction of films like “Nieve Negra” with Ricardo Darín, Leonardo Sbaraglia, Laia Costa or Federico Luppi, among others; “Solo se vive una vez” con Peter Lanzani or Gerard Depardieu; “Animal” of the Oscar winner Armando Bo, among others.

 

In 2021 it recently premiered “La casa del caracol” starring with Paz Vega y Javier Rey, located in top 5 of the most watched films on their first weekend. Also, we have many premieres in theaters during summer and automn 2021, like “A todo tren. Destino Asturias” directed and starring by Santiago Segura, with Leo Harlem, Joaquín Reyes or Florentino Fernández, among others; “Lobo Feroz” directed by Gustavo Hernández and starring with Adriana Ugarte, Javier Gutiérres, Rubén Ochandiano; “Llegaron de noche” directed by Imanol Uribe and starring with Juana Acosta, Carmelo Gómez and Karra Elejade among others.

Something is wrong as she feels distressed and overwhelmed but doesn’t dare share her feelings with anyone. Desperate and at the point of breaking, she starts going to a strange therapy led by a mysterious Guru called Soybaba. The first step is to have her say everything she thinks!
