The distributor has picked up US rights from FilmSharks to Daniel Burman’s recent Panorama opening night selection in Berlin.
The Tenth Man (El Rey Del Once) stars as a man who returns to his Jewish childhood neighbourhood of Once in Buenos Aires and reconnects with his roots.
Alan Sabbagh and Julieta Zylberberg star in the film, which receives its US premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival set to run in New York from April 13-24.
Kino Lorber plans an autumn theatrical release after key festival appearances.
“We fell in love with Daniel Burman’s warm, funny, crowd-pleasing The Tenth Man at Berlinale,” said Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber. “The Tenth Man’s bustling Buenos Aires Jewish community is a rich frame filled with delectable details as one man pursues a return to his roots – a sweetly poignant universal tale.”
