EXCLUSIVE: UK distributor lands 52 Tuesdays and Praia Do Futuro.
UK distributor Peccadillo Pictures has landed rights to Sophie Hyde’s Sundance and Berlin winner 52 Tuesdays from Visit Films, in the first deal struck between the two companies.
The Australian drama, which won a directing award at Sundance and a Crystal Bear in Berlin, follows a sixteen-year-old’s path to independence after her mother reveals that she would like to under-go gender transition.
Peccadillo chairman Tom Abell stated: “We’re excited to be working on such a remarkable debut feature film from a great talent after working with Sophie on her short film My Last Ten Hours With You.”
The LGBT specialists have also completed on Karim Ainouz’s Berlin title Praia do Futuro from Match Factory.
The Berlin competition entry charts the relationship between a German and Brazilian brought together by tragedy.
Peccadillo will release the duo later in the year.
