Emond’s ‘Night #1’ travels to several territories

Quebec-set pic goes to France, Korea, Russia

PARIS — French Canadian first-timer Anne Emond’s “Night #1” has been snapped up in several territories.

Repped by Loic Magneron’s French sales company Wide Management, the Quebec-set pic turns on the encounter between two young people at a rave, which turns out to be more meaningful than the one-night-stand they engaged in.

Pic was snapped up by Fondivina Films for France, Lumix for South Korea and Russian Report for Russia. “Night #1” was previously acquired by U.S. shingle Adopt Film and Spain’s Aquelarre.

Wide Management also sold Shohei Imamura’s restored investigative docu-drama “A Man Vanishes” to Brooklyn-based shingle Icarus Films for all rights U.S. distribution.

Other Wide Management deals include the sale of “The Mole” from Polish helmer Rafael Lewandowski to Gaul’s Fondivina Films.

“The Mole” centers on a Polish man who finds out his father, regarded as one of the leaders of the labor movement of the 1980s, is accused of having been a secret informer for the Communist regime.

Wide Management has just acquired Srdjan Dragojevic’s Serbian hit dramedy “The Parade,” set to open at Berlin in the Panorama; and Christine Laurent’s “Amanha,” a biopic about Uruguayan poet Delmira Agustini, which will bow at Rotterdam.
