The Match Factory has picked up international sales for Israeli film-maker Hagar Ben-Asher’s The Burglar, which wrapped production at the Nivre Studios in Weimar after shooting at locations by the Dead Sea in Israel

The majority production by Leipzig/Berlin-based Rohfilm stars Lihi Kornovsky as a young woman who becomes a female burglar herself after her mother’s home is broken into by brutal thieves.

The co-production with France’s Les Films du Poisson and Israel’s Cinema Group also features German actor Ronald Zehrfeld, who became known to a wider international audience in the 2012 Berlinale Competition title Barbara by Christian Petzold.

The Burglar is Rohfilm’s second collaboration with actress-director Ben-Asher after The Slut which premiered in Cannes in 2011

In addition, Rohfilm is one of the co-producers of Dutch director Sacha Polak’s drama Zurich, which will have its world premiere in this year’s Forum. It is also pitching Emily Atef’s new project 3 Days In Quiberon at the Berlinale Co-Production Market. The story based on real events in the life of the legendary actress Romy Schneider already has Marie Bäumer cast as Schneider and Birgit Minichmair as one of her friends.
