Kino Lorber has picked up all US rights to Bruno Dumont’s Camille Claudel 1915 starring Juliette Binoche.

Nationwide release will kick off on October 16 with an exclusive engagement at New York’s Film Forum.

Binoche portrays Auguste Rodin’s protégé and later his mistress, who is also the sister of the Christian and mystic poet Paul Claudel and in later years is confined to a mental institution.

Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber released Dumont’s first two films in the US – The Life Of Jesus and Humanité.

Lorber negotiated the deal for Camille Claudel 1915 with Wild Bunch head of international sales Carole Baraton.
