M-Appeal goes Electrick with Aussie deal
Rebecca Thomas’s Electrick Children is generating a buzz with buyers.
The film, which opened Generation 14plus last week, has now gone to Rialto for Australia.
The deal was confirmed by Anne Wiedlack of M-Appeal (which is handling world sales). This follows from the sale to Revolver/Picturehouse pick-up of the film for the UK earlier in the market.
Starring Julia Garner and Rory Culkin, Electrick Children is about a Mormon girl who has a life-transforming experience after listening to a rock music cassette. The film also has been selected for SXSW.
The Berlin-based world sales company has also confirmed a deal on another title on its Berlin market slate. Rosa Van Praunheim’s King Of Comics, about satirical cartoonist Ralf Köning, has gone to Spain (Good Films).
