Icarus Films has acquired North American rights to “Rabbit a la Berlin,” the Polish-German documentary short that’s up for an Academy Award.
Deal covers theatrical, TV and homevideo distribution. “Rabbit,” by filmmakers Bartek Konopka, Piotr Rosolowski and Anna Wydra, is a story about thousands of wild rabbits that lived in the No Man’s Land of the Berlin Wall. The animals lived in the zone for 28 years but had to find another place to live when the Wall came down in 1991.
“Rabbit a la Berlin” is set to open theatrically in the fall at Film Forum in New York City.
