Torino-based sales agent The Open Reel has sold the film to Philadeliphia-based TLA Releasing for North America, UK and Ireland, France and French-speaking Territories.

Sunburn has its world premiere in Tallinn on Thursday, November 29.

Directed and written by Vicente Alves do Ó, the Portugese psychological drama follows four friends in their 40s who meet for a weekend by the pool. When a sudden call disrupts the quietness of the hot countryside, old dreams start to grow again.

The film was at the work-in-progress strand of this year’s Locarno Film Festival, where Open Reel boarded sales.

Producers are Pandora da Cunha Telles and Pablo Iraola for Ukbar Filmes. Ricardo Pereira, Oceana Basílio, Nuno Pardal, Ricardo Barbosa, and Rafael Gomes star.
