Film Movement picks up ‘La Sirga’

Colombian pic to be released in fourth quarter

Film Movement has acquired Colombian director William Vega’s “La Sirga,” on the heels of its screening in the Cannes Film Festival’s Directors’ Fortnight.

The Spanish-language film will be released in a New York theatrical opening in the fourth quarter with a limited national roll-out to follow, as well as a day-and-date Cable Video on Demand release.

Story is centered on a woman uprooted by an armed conflict who tries to reshape her life in a decadent hostel on the shores of a great lake in the highlands of the Andes.

“La Sirga” was nominated for the Camera d’Or and Fipresci prize at Cannes.

The acquisition was negotiated by Adley Gartenstein of Film Movement and Pierre Menahem for MPM Film.
