Antipode Inks Deals for Konchalovsky’s Venice Winner

'The Postman’s White Nights' sells to Leopardo in Portugal, ASC in France

LONDON — Antipode Sales and Distribution has inked two territory deals on Andrei Konchalovsky’s “The Postman’s White Nights,” which just won the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival.

Antipode has closed with Leopardo Filmes for Portugal and ASC Distribution for France. There are negotiations ongoing with buyers from seven other territories, Antipode president Anton Mazurov told Variety.

The film tells the story of a postman (Aleksey Tryapitsyn), who lives in a remote village in northern Russia. He is the village’s sole connection to the outside world, relying on his motorboat to bridge the gap. But when his boat’s motor is stolen and the woman he loves escapes to the city, the postman follows, desperate for a new adventure and a new life.

In a statement, the director described the film as “an attempt to see the world surrounding us through the eyes of a ‘newborn.’ An attempt to unhurriedly study life.”

Other pics on Antipode’s slate include Aleksey Fedorchenko’s “The Angels of Revolution.” The pic looks at the origins of the Russian Revolution and its relationship with the Russian artistic avant-garde.

Also being sold by Antipode is Dmitry Lavrinenko’s “Encore,” which is a documentary feature about the cult Russian rock band Auktyon and its creator.
