Maja Milos’ ‘Clip’ to get U.S. release

Artsploitation picks up debut helmer's Toronto player

PARIS —New indie distrib Artsploitation Films has closed all U.S. rights on “Clip,” Serbian up-and-comer Maja Milos’ feature debut.

Pic, which will play at Toronto in the Discovery section and at San Sebastian in the Zabaltegi Specials sidebar, previously sold to key territories including France (KMBO).

It also won Rotterdam’s Tiger Award and the Dutch film critics’ KNF nod.

A controversial and sultry depiction of postwar Serbian teens, “Clip” turns on Jasna, a pretty teenager (Isidora Simijonovic) disillusioned by her drab life in a remote town, who experiments with sex, drugs and partying.

Pic is sold by Loic Magneron’s Wide Management and produced by Film House’s Bas Celik.

Philadelphia-based Artsploitation Films, founded by former TLA Releasing owner Raymond Murray, handles distribution in the U.S. and the U.K. and is dedicated to edgy international pics with an emphasis on genre films.

Meanwhile, Wide Management has acquired a raft of buzzed-about pics’ for worldwide sales, including two Toronto players set for the Contemporary World Cinema selection: Algerian Said Ould-Khelifa’s “Zabana” and Uruguayan Pablo Stoll Ward’s family comedy “Tres,” which just sold to Poland (Manana) and the Netherlands (Contact Film).

Ould-Khelifa’s “Zabana!” turns on the fact-based story of Ahmed Zabana, an Algerian nationalist who was executed in 1956 by French colonial authorities.

“Tres,” a Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight screener, centers on a man who wants to return to his first wife and teenage daughter after being away for 10 years.
