Zeitgeist finds ‘Silence’

Groening helmed film about the Grand Chartreuse

Zeitgeist Films has scooped up U.S. rights to “Into Great Silence,” a Sundance pic about a French monastery, from Bavaria Film Intl.

Philip Groening directed the film about the Grand Chartreuse, focusing on the daily lives and rituals of the monks. Pic won the world cinema special jury prize for documentary feature at Sundance this year; it also played Lincoln Center’s New Directors/New Films Festival in Gotham.

Zeitgeist’s Nancy Gerstman negotiated the deal with Thorsten Schaumann of Bavaria Film.
