BERLIN — Strand Releasing has picked up U.S. rights to Israeli pic “The Bubble,” which screens here in Panorama.
Directed by Eytan Fox, pic follows the intertwined stories of four young people living in and around Tel Aviv’s fashionable Sheinkin Street.
Strand distributed two of Fox’s previous movies, “Yossi and Jagger” and “Time Off.” Fox’s last movie, “Walk on Water,” was Israel’s biggest grosser ever, taking more than $7 million worldwide.
Strand co-president John Gerrans negotiated the acquisition with Pierre Menahem of Scalpel Films. The U.S. release is scheduled for August.
