Company picks up N. American rights to Eran Riklis pic
Film Movement has picked up North American rights to “The Human Resources Manager,” the Eran Riklis-helmed feature that bowed at the Locarno Film Festival.
Also an alum of the Toronto Film Fest, “Manager” follows a Jerusalem bakery’s head of HR, who accompanies the body of an employee killed by a suicide bomber back to the worker’s home country. Mark Ivanir stars as the title character.
Deal was negotiated between Film Movement’s Adley Gartenstein and Pyramide’s Yoann Ubermulhin. Film Movement is targeting a March theatrical release for “Manager,” with VOD to follow in the summer.
