French independent ARP concluded its buying streak at the Sundance Film Festival, taking continental European rights to American Spectrum entry Haiku Tunnel.

ARP had already bought French-speaking rights to David Siegel and Scott McGehee's The Deep End and Joel Hopkins' Jump Tomorrow, in both instances before the US domestic buyers Fox Searchlight and IFC Films came on board.

Haiku Tunnel is a social comedy directed by first time film-makers Jacob and Josh Kornbluth and starring Josh Kornbluth as an aspiring novelist who does temp jobs to pay his bills and is then faced with a crisis when one of the jobs is made permanent.
