Sundance’s Iranian Vampire Western Gets U.S. Distribution

Kino Lorber has acquired North American rights to “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night,” five months after its world premiere at Sundance.

Shot in black and white, the feature debut of Ana Lily Amirpour, is set in an imaginary Iranian underworld with elements of neo-noir and spaghetti Western. It was  the opening-night film at the New Directors/New Films event in New York.

Argo” actress Sheila Vand stars as a vampire along with Arash Marandi and Dominic Rains, Mozhan Marno, Rome Shadanloo, Marshall Manesh and Milad Eghbali.

Kino Lorber is planning a theatrical release for the film in October, followed by a digital and home media release early next year. It plans to partner with Vice Media for promotion and social-media outreach campaigns.

Guy Lodge called the film “sly” and an “auspicious debut” in his review for Variety.

This deal was negotiated between Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber and Cinetic Media on behalf of the filmmakers.
