Exciting news for Disney fans and lovers of international cinema! The Walt Disney Company (TWDC) has just announced their latest acquisition: the Argentine crime thriller *A Silent Death* (Una Muerte Silenciosa). Directed by the renowned Sebastian Schindel, this film promises a thrilling ride through the dark secrets of 1980s Patagonia.

The story follows a hunting guide who uncovers a horrifying crime involving his niece. As he dives deeper into his investigation, he must confront long-buried secrets and the haunting memories of that turbulent era. The film is anchored by a stellar cast, including Joaquín Furriel, known for his roles in *The Boss* and *To Rest in Peace*, as well as Soledad Villamil from the Oscar-winning *The Secret in Their Eyes*. Supporting performances by Alejandro Awada and Maria Marull add to the film’s depth and intrigue.

FilmSharks, a key player in the international sales scene, is handling the distribution of this compelling thriller at the Marché du Film in Cannes. Disney’s Star Distribution will be responsible for bringing *A Silent Death* to theaters across Latin America in the third and fourth quarters of 2024. Following its theatrical run, the movie will be available for streaming on STAR+, Disney’s popular streaming service, ensuring that audiences throughout the region can experience this intoxicating tale of suspense and mystery.

The production of *A Silent Death* boasts an impressive lineup of producers, including Esteban and Hori Mentasti of Bufalo Films, and Nicolas Veinberg of Pampa Films. Esteban Mentasti expressed his gratitude, stating, “Making a film of this class in Argentina has become a huge adventure. We wanted to thank all our partners.” Echoing these sentiments, Hori Mentasti added, “We believe a world-class film like *A Silent Death* is in the best hands with TWDC and FilmSharks.”

Guido Rud of FilmSharks added, “This is likely to become one of the Latin films of the year. Sebastian Schindel has established himself as the Master of Crime after the international success of his films *The Boss*, *The Son*, *Crimes That Bind*, and *The Wrath of God*. There is a huge appetite for crime films, and this one is poised to capture audiences across all platforms.”
