TF1 International has picked up worldwide rights on Lea Pool's first English-language project, Lost And Delirious, which starts shooting May 29 in Lennoxville.
The C$7m film, set in a girls' boarding school in English-speaking Canada in the 1960s, is produced by Lorraine Richard of CiteAmerique. It stars hot young Canadian actresses Piper and Jessica Pare (of Denys Arcand's Cannes closer Stardom).
TF1's foreign sales arm, under CEO Didier Sapaut and international sales manager Perrine Teze, handled Pool's previous title, the critically-acclaimed Emporte-moi, which won numerous festival awards. The film was sold in 22 territories, including the US to Merchant Ivory's Artistic License.
