Seventh Arts finds ‘Heaven’

It will release Wauer doc in North America

TORONTO — Seventh Art Releasing has acquired North American rights to Britta Wauer’s documentary “In Heaven, Underground: The Jewish Cemetery in Berlin-Weissensee” during the Hot Docs festival, the company announced Tuesday.

The doc, a portrait of the 100-acre, 130-year-old cemetery that remained in Jewish hands throughout Nazi rule in Germany, had its international preem at the fest on Sunday and world preemed in February at Berlin, where it won the Panorama audience award for doc.

Seventh Art, which has released notable Jewish titles such as “Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story,” “Love During Wartime” and “Surviving Hitler,” plans a winter theatrical rollout for “In Heaven, Underground” following a fest circuit run.
