A Thought Of Ecstasy

The film had a sold-out international premiere in the Official Competition at last week’s Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.

The deal was brokered by RP Kahl of Studio RPK, Torsten Neumann of Independent Partners Film and Paul Thiltges and Adrien Chef of PTD.

A Thought Of Ecstasy, which had its world premiere at the Filmfest München earlier this year, stars Canadian actress Deborah Kara Unger, who also serves as an executive producer.

Unger was one of the mentors for the Black Nights’ new initiative Screen Stars Tallinn, a three-day workshop and showcase for seven up-and-coming actors from Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Finland and Germany.
