The recent Berlin world premiere from Terence Malick’s longtime collaborator AJ Edwards premiered in Sundance and screened in Berlin.

Amplify will release the impressionistic black and white tale of Abraham Lincoln’s early childhood theatrically in autumn followed by VOD and home video release in early 2015.

Edwards worked as an editor on Malick’s The New World, second unit director and editor on The Tree Of Life, To The Wonder, and the upcoming Knight Of Cups.  

“I am humbled by the passion Amplify has shown for The Better Angels since its premiere,” said Edwards, who spoke to Screendaily about the film shortly before its Sundance world premiere. “Our team is so glad this great company will be shepherding our film.”

Malick produced alongside Nicolas Gonda, Jake DeVito and Charley Beil.
