Lorber takes U.S. rights to ‘Korkoro’

Gatlif's WWII drama set for March theatrical release

Lorber Films has picked up U.S. rights to WWII drama “Korkoro” for a spring theatrical release.

Latest from French writer-helmer Tony Gatlif (“Exiles”) follows a mayor (Marc Lavoine) and a schoolteacher (Marie-Josee Croze) in a small French town who try to help a tribe of Gypsies who are persecuted by both the Nazis and the French.

Pic’s Romany-language title translates to “Freedom.” Produced by Princes Films, “Korkoro” premiered at the Montreal Film Festival in 2009.

Distribution deal was pacted by Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber with sales rep TF1. The U.S. theatrical release will kick off March 25 at New York’s Cinema Village ahead of stints in select cities, with DVD and digital distribution to follow later in the year.
