EXCLUSIVE: Visit Films has closed its first deals on Sophie Hyde’s 52 Tuesdays, licensing US rights to Kino Lorber ahead of the film’s European premiere in the Berlinale’s Generation programme on Saturday (8).

President Ryan Kampe has closed deals with Praesens for Switzerland and Edko for Hong Kong on the Australian story of a teenager whose mother reveals plans for gender reassignment.

“Kino Lorber understands the film in the way that we did when we first saw the one-minute promo in Melbourne at 37 South and will be able to really take this film out to a wide audience, maximising the film’s unique and groundbreaking style,” said Kampe.

Visit Films’ EFM slate includes six other titles, among them Benjamin Naishtat’s Competition entry History Of Fear and Sanjay Rawal’s Culinary Cinema selection Food Chains.
