Film Movement has acquired North American rights to Ciro Guerra’s Colombian foreign-language Oscar submission The Wind Journeys and has set a spring 2010 theatrical release.
The Spanish language drama follows an old musician and his disciple as they undertake a journey through the Colombian countryside.
Film Movement president Adley Gartenstein and vice-president of acquisitions and distribution Rebeca Conget signed the deal with Elle Driver’s Eva Diederix and Adeline Fontan Tessaur.
“The unparalleled visual beauty of this film is only matched by the incredible music of its soundtrack,” Gartenstein said. “We’re sure audiences are going to be mesmerised by this gorgeous film.”
