Berlin: Sundance Winner ’52 Tuesdays’ Gets U.S. Distribution

Kino Lorber has acquired U.S. rights to Sophie Hyde’s “52 Tuesdays,” which won a directing prize at Sundance, from Visit Films.

Kino Lorber plans to release the Australian film in the second half of this year on a limited basis nationwide. “52 Tuesdays” has also been sold to Praesens for Switzerland and Edko for Hong Kong ahead of the film’s Berlinale festival premiere.

The film is shot chronologically on one day every week for a year. The story follows a 16-year-old, whose path to independence is accelerated when her mother reveals plans to gender transition and limits their time together to one afternoon a week.

“52 Tuesdays” won the best director award in the World Cinema Competition at Sundance.

Visit Films also has Benjamin Naishtat’s “History of Fear” screening in competition at Berlin.

Geoff Berkshire gave “52 Tuesdays” a positive review for Variety at Sundance.
