01.08.2014. Picture Tree International acquires highly anticipated Paulo Coelho biopic “THE PILGRIM”.
Berlin based international sales and production outfit, Picture Tree International (PTI), has secured the global distribution rights for the Paulo Coelho biopic “The Pilgrim – the Best Story of Paulo Coelho” from Brazilian production house CUATRO DAMA FILMES.
Undoubtedly one of the most accomplished literary figures of the century, Coelho’s 30 novels have been translated into 80 languages, distributed in 224 territories and sold over 165 million copies. Many know the author of “The Alchemist” as an international celebrity, with faithful followers in the four corners of the world. What only few know is that Coelho’s life story, the main source of inspiration for his work, is even better than fiction. He flirted with death, escaped from madness, experimented with drugs, overcame torture, made Rock and Roll History in Brazil, but never gave up on his biggest dream: to triumph as a writer.
