EXCLUSIVE: ARRI Media Worldsales closes number of deals on Edgar Reitz’s latest feature.
ARRI Media Worldsales has closed a number of deals with very prestigious independent distributors for veteran German director Edgar Reitz’s Home From Home (Die andere Heimat), ranging from Artificial Eye/Curzon (UK & Ireland), Lumiere (Benelux), Sweden (TriArt), and Camera Film (Denmark).
Home From Home has already been released succesfully by its French co-producer Les Films du Losange in French cinemas and by Concorde Filmverleih in Germany.
In addition, Alain Gsponer’s family feature The Little Ghost, which had already been sold to multiple territories including North America ahead of the Berlinale, has now found a new home in Italy with the distributor Notorious Pictures.
The Rome-based company has acquired all rights and is planning a theatrical release this summer.
ARRI’s acquisitions and sales director Moritz Hemminger told Screen that he is now “in negotiations” with distributors from Spain, Japan, Turkey and the Middle East to pick up The Little Ghost.
