The Brooklyn-based distributor has acquired US rights to Maya Vitkova’s Bulgarian feature debut.
Viktoria premiered in Sundance 2014 and Big World Pictures plans to continue festival appearances through the end of 2015 ahead of a January 2016 theatrical release.
The film follows three generations of women at the cusp of a new political dawn in Bulgaria.
Vitkova wrote, directed and produced Viktoria through her production company Viktoria Films alongside Anca and Cristi Puiu’s Mandragora.
Viktoria Films represents world rights.
