UK-based sales and financing company Film Constellation has picked up international rights to Michael Tyburski’s The Sound Of Silence, ahead of its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival (January 24 – February 3).
The film is Tyburski’s feature debut, and adapted from his and writer-produer Ben Nabors’ short Palimpsest, winner of the special jury prize at Sundance 2013. UTA is handling North American rights on the feature.
It tells the story of self-taught scientist Peter (Peter Sarsgaard), who analyses the acoustic characteristics of houses. A meeting with Ellen (Rashida Jones) reveals a fault in his practice.
Further cast includes Tony Revolori and Austin Pendleton. Producers are Nabors, Michael Prall, Tariq Merhab, Charlie Scully, Mandy Tagger Brockey and Adi Ezroni.
