EXCLUSIVE: Buoyed by a fresh North American deal for Sundance hit Morris From America, Ryan Kampe jets into Berlin with a bevy of buzzy festival titles set to receive their market premieres.

Samuel Vincent, Anamaria Vartolomei, Lucien Le Guern, Lubna Azabal, and Samir Guesmi star. Visit represents worldwide rights excluding France.
Rotterdam title Suntan from Argyris Papadimitropoulos is a dark ‘coming-of-middle-age’ drama that just premiered in Holland and stars Makis Papadimitriou as a lonely, middle-aged doctor of a tiny holiday island who become obsessed with a young tourist.
Elli Tringou, Milou Van Groessen, Dimi Hart, Hara Kotsali, and Marcus Collen also star. Odeon will distribute in Greece and Cyprus.
