Volker Schlondorff’s ‘Calm at Sea’ acquired by Corinth for U.S.

Wartime drama also sold to Japan, Russia, China

German vet helmer Volker Schlondorff’s wartime drama “Calm at Sea” has been acquired by Pennsylvania-based Corinth Films for North American distribution.

Repped by Loic Magneron’s Wide Management, “Sea,” a Berlin Panorama player, has also sold to Japan (Moviola), Finland and Sweden (Studio Show Entertainment Sweden AB), Russia and CIS (Cinema Prestige), China (Domo Media), Norway (Storytelling).

A French resistance drama, “Sea” depicts the real-life execution of 27 French WWII prisoners in 1941.

At the American Film Market, Wide is hosting the first screening of Estonia’s Arun Tamm and Andres Kopper’s comedy-thriller “Bad Hair Friday” (Vasaku Jala Reede) and is showing first-time helmer Marcos Prado’s Brazilian romance “Artificial Paradises” (Paraisos Artificiais).

“Paradises” opens Wednesday in Gaul. Magneron said Wide has received several offers on “Paradises” and is looking to finalize deals at the AFM.

Shingle is also shopping Said Ould-Khelifa’s “Zabana,” the pic representing Algeria in the Oscar’s foreign-language race.

Wide also has two titles playing at the AFI festival: Serbian first-timer Maja Milos’ “Clip” — recently picked up in North America (Artsploitation), Poland (Tongariro releasing) and Hong Kong (Sundream Motion Pictures) — and Alain Gomis’ French-Senegalese drama “Today” (Tey).
