Film Movement has picked up North American rights to Berlinale selection Moon, 66 Questions, which is currently screening at New Directors/New Films.
Greek filmmaker Jacqueline Lentzou’s feature directorial debut was a Teddy nominee in Berlin and also played at Mexico’s FICUNAM earlier this year.
Moon, 66 Questions will open theatrically this year follow by home entertainment and digital platforms and centres on twentysomething Artemis (Sofia Kokkali) who returns to Greece to care for her father (Lazaros Georgakopoulos) after he suffers a debilitating illness.
“Starting with her startling shorts, we’ve eagerly followed Jacqueline’s career,” said Film Movement president Michael Rosenberg. “She’s a visionary and a true original, and Moon, 66 Questions is the feature film debut for which we had hoped from her.”
Rosenberg brokered the deal with Fiorella Moretti, CEO of sales agent Luxbox Films.
Film Movement recently acquired Ryûsuke Hamaguchi’s Silver Bear winner Wheel Of Fortune And Fantasy; Alexandre Rockwell’s Sweet Thing; and Ivaylo Hristov’s Tallinn Black Nights grand prize winner Fear.
