Anna Marie de la Fuente The Dominican Republic’s Bou Group is in production on its latest pic under its unprecedented multi-year distribution deal with The Walt Disney Company, “Cazatesoros.” According to the adventure caper’s director, Héctor Manuel Valdez, who co-founded Bou Group with José Ramón Alamá and Vicente Alamá, the pact with Disney came about following several years as regional box office leaders. “They contacted us in 2020 after our company had previously produced commercial successes such as ‘Todos los hombres son iguales,’ ‘Colao,’ ‘Trabajo sucio’ and ‘Que león,’ (the highest-grossing film in the history of the Dominican Republic), among others,” said Valdez.
Like most of the producers in the country, Bou Group finances its films by tapping into Article 34 of the Dominican Republic’s tax incentives, which allows companies in the DR to allocate 25% of their projected taxes towards local production.
As a result of this partnership with Disney, Bou Group’s “El año del tigre” was the first film in the Caribbean region to premiere on Star+, Disney’s streaming platform in Latin America. “Our second release on the platform, ‘Malos padres,’ remained in theaters for 14 consecutive weeks, becoming the highest-grossing local premiere of the year to date,” added Valdez, who expects their next pic “Bienvenidos al paraíso,” now in post, and “Cazatesoros” to land on Star+ next year after Disney releases them theatrically.Read more on variety.com
