Olympusat, Inc., the TV and media industry leader specializing in Spanish-language TV networks, is pleased to announce that it won Best Screenplay for Sofía, a feature-length film at the 3 Edition of the Festival Cine Marbella in Marbella, Spain on June 02, 2019.

With its seamless editing, snappy dialogue and cinematography drawing from every nuanced ounce of the beautiful color palette offered by Santander, Colombia where it is filmed, is not so much concerned with following the arc of a typical romantic drama than it is telling the story of female empowerment in a macho world dominated by men whose own implacable self-interests are often the rule of the land.

So, it’s no surprise that despite Sofía (Paola Rey) being responsible for the well-being of three relatives, her self-centered brother Fabio, (Andrés Bejar) is intent on selling the family home leaving his sister and relatives to an uncertain fate. Further complicating matters is that Sofía has long been stifled under the thumb of her lifelong boyfriend Julio (Famor Botero). That all changes when an intriguing stranger named Oscar (Christian Carabias) shows up in town to repair an old bridge. One scene in particular, in which Sofía is seen in long shot crossing from one side of the old bridge to the other, suggests a perfect metaphor for her transformation from a dispirited, caged sparrow to a soaring example of how one can draw strength from an unfavorable environment—and eventually find the motivation to embark on a life lived under her own terms.

Sofía’s sumptuous cinematography and crisp storytelling are indicative of the kind of high-quality content Olympusat’s award-winning Original Productions team is known for. By seeking out only the most highly talented professionals like Famor Botero, who wrote the screenplay for Sofía, the team is consistently able to produce the best possible scripted TV series, movies, music videos, commercials and more.

“We are constantly seeking new collaborations with writers, directors and producers to create high-quality content offering new entertaining perspectives that resonate with today’s evolving Hispanic audience,” said Yeshuah Castillo vice president of Original Productions at Olympusat.

Sofía is produced by Olympusat and Altovoltaje Films It has a run time of 90 minutes and is directed by Famor Botero.
