Bavaria Film International has taken over sales duties from World Sales Christa Saredi on a trio of Michael Haneke films and a library that also includes pictures by Hal Hartley, Fridrik Thor Fridriksson, Assi Dayan and Bakhtiyar Khudojnazarov.

The move sees Bavaria complete the take-over of the WSCS catalogue that was previously handled by Christa Saredi and its Cologne-based offshoot Orfeo Films, which was headed by Helen Loveridge.

Bavaria had already taken over sales of Pan Nalin's Samsara and Ayurveda, Emir Kusturica's Super 8 Stories and Aki Kaurismaki's Cannes competition film The Man Without A Past.

Bavaria will now handle sales and service on last year's Cannes prize winner The Piano Teacher (La Pianiste), Code Inconnu and the forthcoming Wolfzeit, which is now in production with Isabelle Huppert starring.
