Strand Releasing has acquired U.S. rights to Dennis Todorovic’s German coming-of-age film “Sasha.”

Film centers around a young man who falls in love with his piano teacher despite the wishes of his temperamental father.

Ewa Borowski produced the film, which stars Sasa Kekez and Tim Bergmann.

Jon Gerrans of Strand Releasing and Nadja Jumah of M-appeal brokered the deal.

The pic will screen at Los Angeles Outfest in July, with Strand planning an early 2011 release.
