Kino picks up ‘Day,’ ‘Death’

Foreign-lingo pics get U.S. release

NEW YORK — Gotham-based distrib Kino Intl. has acquired North American rights to Karen Shakhnarazov’s “The Rider Named Death” and Volker Schlondorff’s “The Ninth Day.”

The German-language “Ninth Day,” a vet of the Locarno and Toronto film fests, will be released in Gotham in June. Pic is loosely based on the Nazi-era prison diary of Luxembourgian priest Jean Bernard. Helmer Schlondorff’s 1979 feature “The Tin Drum” won the Academy Award for foreign-language film.

“Rider,” a Russian-lingo feature about Boris Savinkov, a Russian terrorist in the years leading up to the Russian Revolution in 1917, unspooled at the Montreal Film Festival this year and will open in New York in April.

Each pic will open with a single engagement in Gotham, followed by a single engagement in L.A. and then engagements in 10-20 cities.
