Cannes: ARP Acquires Un Certain Regard Title ‘The Transfiguration’ From Protagonist

LONDON — French distributor ARP has acquired Michael O’Shea’s debut feature “The Transfiguration” from Protagonist Pictures, a week before its world premiere at Cannes Film Festival in Un Certain Regard.

The film stars newcomer Eric Ruffin alongside Chloe Levine, and is produced by Susan Leber, whose credits include Sundance winner “Down to the Bone,” directed by Debra Granik and Ti West’s first feature “The Roost.” O’Shea both wrote and directed the pic, described as an “atmospheric New York tale about love, loss and obsession.”

The deal was negotiated by Jennifer Fattell for Protagonist Pictures and Michele Halberstadt, CEO for ARP. Halberstadt commented: “We fell in love with this utterly original, atmospheric and moving tale of self-discovery.”
