Comic thriller won new director prize at Tribeca

Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired U.S. rights to Emanuel Hoss-Desmarais’ comic thriller “Whitewash,” starring Thomas Haden Church.

Entertainment One is selling the film in Cannes.

“Whitiewash” premiered last month at the Tribeca Film Festival, where it won the best new narrative director award. Oscilloscope will release the film theatrically and across all digital platforms.

The film was produced by Luc Dery and Kim McCraw of Micro_scope.

Haden Church plays a down-on-his-luck and recently unemployed plow operator in a small, snowy Canadian town. When he accidentally kills a man in the midst of a rampage with his snowplow, he must deal with the consequences.

The deal was negotiated by David Laub and Dan Berger of Oscilloscope with Charlotte Mickie of Entertainment One on behalf of the filmmakers.
