‘Night’ racks up EFA honor, sales

Pic sold to ten territories at Mifed

ROME — Marco Bellocchio’s “Good Morning, Night” has nabbed the European Film Academy’s critics prize and scored a raft of sales.

The veteran Italian helmer and his drama, about the 1978 terrorist abduction and murder of Prime Minister Aldo Moro, will be honored at the EFA award ceremony Dec. 6 in Berlin.

Awarded in collaboration with the international federation of film critics, EFA’s Prix Fipresci “wants to single out not only a masterpiece, one of the author’s best, but also an outstanding filmography that goes back to 1965,” Fipresci president Michel Ciment said.

Produced by RAI Cinema and Bellocchio’s Filmalbatros, “Good Morning, Night” recounts Moro’s abduction and eventual murder by Red Brigade members.

French sales company Celluloid Dreams reported copious pickups for “Good Morning, Night” during last week’s Mifed, where it was acquired by 10 territories including Vertigo Films for Spain, Bitters End for Japan and Maywin Media for Russia.
