Cinema Guild values ‘Patience’

Sebald biopic to play in Copenhagen doc fest this week

LONDON — Cinema Guild has snapped up U.S. rights to helmer Grant Gee’s documentary “Patience (After Sebald).”

Bio concerns German-born author W.G. Sebald, who moved in 1966 to Blighty, where he lived until his death in 2001, age 57.

It’s an exploration of his work and influence told during a long walk along the southeast coast of England, tracking Sebald’s most famous book, “The Rings of Saturn.”

“Patience” had its U.S. preem at the New York Film Festival last month and screens in the Copenhagen Intl. Documentary Film Festival this week.

Soda Pictures Intl., the new sales arm of U.K. indie distrib Soda Pictures, is selling the pic and will release it theatrically in Blighty in January as part of the New British Cinema Quarterly program.

Cinema Guild will release the pic domestically in the spring, opening at the Film Forum on April 25.

Other pics on Soda’s sales slate include helmer Jamie Thraves’ “Treacle Jr.,” starring Aidan Gillen, and Michael Whyte’s doc “Relics & Roses,” about the tour of the relics of St. Therese of Lisieux around the U.K. in 2009.
