Paris-based Rezo Films has sealed some major territorial deals on John Sayles' latest feature Honeydripper to Axiom in the UK, Seville/Entertainment One in Canada, Golem in Spain, Immovision in Brazil and Orlando Films in Israel.

Meanwhile Alcine Terran in Japan bought two films from Rezo - veteran auteur Eric Rohmer's The Romance Of Astrea And Celadon and Manoel De Oliveira's Christopher Columbus, The Enigma.

Cinema Guild has taken US rights to Alexander Sokurov's Alexandra.
Rezo sold Andrei Nekrasov's controversial feature-documentary Rebellion, The Litvinenko Case, a late entry in Cannes this year, to Japan (Tokyo Theatres) and Poland (Best).

Orlando Films has taken Volker Schlondorff's Ulzhan for Israel, and Les Films De L'Elysee has taken Benelux rights to Laetitia Masson's Coupable, which is in post-production and is likely to be vying for official selection in Berlin.

Rezo has also added two new titles to its line-up. One is Abbas Fadhel's dramatic feature debut The Dawn Of The World, about a young couple forced apart during the first Gulf War in Iraq.

The second title is Karim Dridi's Khamsa, which comes billed as a City Of God -style drama set within the gypsy community. Both films are currently now in production.
