Ryan Kampe and Sylvain Tron's boutique New York-based sales company Visit Films has acquired international rights to Josh Safdie's Director's Fortnight closing night film The Pleasure Of Being Robbed.

The film stars Eleonore Hendricks as a young woman who often brings joy to strangers' lives while robbing them of their possessions.

Kampe and Tron brokered the deal with the film-makers and Josh Braun of Submarine Entertainment.

'We have been building a slate of American films that the world needs to see and The Pleasure Of Being Robbed is the film we have been looking for,' Kampe and Tron said. 'It is beautiful and unassuming but also powerfully hypnotic.'

Visit Films' Cannes slate includes the previously announced Sundance hit Momma's Man, as well as Olaf De Fleur's docudrama The Amazing Truth About Queen Raquel, SXSW documentary The Matador from Stephen Higgins and Nina Gilden Seavey, and Guy Moshe's Holly starring Ron Livingston, Chris Penn, Virginie Ledoyen, and Udo Kier.

Visit has also concluded a raft of deals, including a four-picture Brazilian deal with Moviemobz on Arranged, Hannah Takes The Stairs, Choking Man and Severed Ways: The Norse Discovery Of America.

The company also sold Hannah Takes The Stairs to the UK (ICA Films), Choking Man to the UK (Soda), and Severed Ways: The Norse Discovery Of America to Germany, Austria and Switzerland (Ascot-Elite).
