Oscilloscope nabs domestic rights to ‘Bella’

Karolinski documentary had its world preem at Berlin fest

Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American rights to Alexa Karolinski’s documentary “Oma and Bella.”

The movie had its world premiere in Feburary at the Berlin International Film Festival and has been screened at Hot Docs, Silverdocs and the Woodstock Film Festival.

Oscilloscope said it was making “Oma and Bella” available across online transactional platforms starting Thursday.

The film centers around two older Jewish women who are best friends living together in Berlin (one of whom is the filmmaker’s grandmother) after having survived the Holocaust and stayed in Germany after the war. The duo spend their days telling stories, cracking jokes, dispensing advice, and devoting the majority of their time to cooking.

“Oma and Bella” was produced by Karolisnki along with Jeff Dupre and Maro Charnoff of Show of Force. Karolinski, Dupre and Charnoff negotiated the deal with David Laub and Dan Beger of Oscilloscope.
