Berlin: Film Movement Takes North America on ‘To Kill a Man’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Fall rollout planned for Chilean EFM player

New York-based Film Movement has zeroed in on Sundance World Cinema grand jury winner “To Kill a Man.”

Film Movement plans a U.S./Canada fall theatrical bow, followed by a VOD and DVD release. “To Kill” will screen in the U.S. in competition at mid-March’s Miami Festival.

Struck in the final days of Sundance, where “To Kill” world premiered, deal was sealed with sales agent Film Factory at the kickoff to Berlin, where the film screens.

Chilean Alejandro Fernandez Almendras’ third feature, “To Kill” has been one of the most buzzed-up films to come out of Latin America ever since it won Locarno’s Carte Blanche rough-cut showcase.

“To Kill” turns on a family man who,decides to take justice into his own hands when his kids are attacked.

“The first part of the film justifies what the protagonist has to do. It’s the ‘Dirty Harry’ set-up,” Fernandez Almendras told Variety. The second part of the film deals with the real motives and consequences of that decision.

Film Movement president Adley Gartenstein and Film Factory managing director Vicente Canales negotiated the deal.

This is his first movie to clinch U.S. distribution.
