Sundance Selects grabs ‘Renee’

Distributor to release Caouette film

Sundance Selects has walked away with North American rights to doc “Walk Away Renee,” Jonathan Caouette’s follow-up to his 2003 breakout “Tarnation.”

Pic centers on the cross-country journey taken by Caouette and his mentally ill mother, Renee, as well as on the memories recalled over the course of the trip. Following a preem as a work-in-progress at Cannes earlier this year, a finished cut of “Renee” is being put together over the summer for a bow at an upcoming fest.

Caouette, Gerard Lacroix and Pierre-Paul Puljiz produce with Catherine Roualt on board as exec producer. Distribution deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco of Sundance Selects with Carole Baraton of sales agent Wild Bunch.

Sundance Selects is a sister division of IFC Films and IFC Midnight. “Renee” joins a lineup that includes the current “Tabloid” and upcoming films “Weekend,” “Pina” and “The Black Power Mixtape: 1967-1974.”
