Cinema Guild has picked up North American rights to Berlin Encounters double prize-winner The Girl And The Spider.
Ramon Zürcher was named best director for the German-language film about friends and flatmates whose lives are thrown into disarray when one of them decides to move out.
Emerging talents Henriette Confurius and Liliane Amuat lead the ensemble cast and the film also won the FIPRESCI prize.
Silvan Zürcher wrote and produced The Girl And The Spider, the second film in the Swiss brothers’ trilogy about human bonding.
They previously worked on 2013 Berlinale premiere The Strange Little Cat.
Cinema Guild president Peter Kelly negotiated the deal for The Girl And The Spider with Sebastien Chesneau of Cercamon.
