Pablo Berger’s Blancanieves is Spain’s foreign-language Oscar entry, making it two consecutive years in which the Academy may have a chance to honor a silent black-and-white film. The Arcadia Pictures production is a re-telling of Snow White that’s set in 1920s Spain. It recently won the Special Jury Prize in San Sebastian and a best actress nod for Macarena Garcia. Cohen Media Group has shown a predilection for European art house fare and this title adds to its growing silent film collection. The company recently acquired the Rohauer Film Library with works of such pre-talkie talent as D.W. Griffith, Douglas Fairbanks and Buster Keaton. The Blancanieves deal was negotiated by CMG’s Gary Rubin and Dreamcatchers co-founder Marina Fuentes.
