new acquisition: VALERIA IS GETTING MARRIED

We're very happy to reveal our new acquisition: VALERIA IS GETTING MARRIED by Michal Vinik.
Set over the course of one day, the film focuses on the relationship between two Ukrainian sisters. Valeria is a mail order bride who arrives in Israel to meet her future husband. She joins her older sister Christina, who has been living in Israel for some time and met her own husband through a similar “bride-to-order” deal.

This is our second collaboration with director Michal Vinik - her first feature film BARASH premiered at San Sebastian in 2015 and became both a festivals and sales hit.

new acquisition: 99 MOONS

We're very happy to reveal our new acquisition: the erotic love story 99 MOONS directed by Jan Gassmann, which will have its world premiere in Cannes’ ACID sidebar. The film focuses on Bigna, a twenty-eight-year-old scientist, who is used to having everything under control, even her erotic desires always follow rules. Frank searches for meaning in a haze of drugs, feeding on other people’s affection. Their different worlds collide, and they become obsessively entwined in a passionate affair. Welcome on board team!
