Company acquires Jared Moshe pic, which debuted at L.A. fest

Cinedigm Entertainment Group has acquired North American distribution rights to writer-director Jared Moshe’s “Dead Man’s Burden.”

“Burden” premiered in June at the Los Angeles Film Festival and will screen at the Hamptons International Film Festival this weekend. Cinedigm’s theatrical distribution will commence in 2013, with subsequent roll out across on-demand, digital and DVD.

Set in 1870 in the aftermath of the Civil War, “Burden” is the story of a couple who are struggling to make ends meet on the rural New Mexico frontier. When a mining company expresses interest in buying their land, their plans are soon complicated when the wife’s brother — presumed dead during the war — returns to the family homestead after learning of their father’s death.

Filmed in the high desert of northern New Mexico, pic marks independent producer Moshe’s (“Corman’s World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel”) directorial debut. The film is produced by Veronica Nickel with Jennifer Chikes, Ruth Mutch, Nick Quested as exec producers.

The filmmakers were represented by Josh Braun of Submarine Entertainment. Cinedigm was repped by Emily Rothschild.
