Cannes: Critics’ Week Film ‘One Week and a Day’ Kicks Off Sales (EXCLUSIVE)

Jan Naszewski’s New Europe Film Sales has closed its first deals on Israeli black comedy “One Week and a Day,” which runs in Critics’ Week at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Warsaw, Poland-based sales agent has sold all rights for Australia to JIFF Distribution. French rights were sold to Sophie Dulac Distribution, as previously announced. New Europe reports strong interest in the film from U.S. and European buyers.

The film, directed by Israeli-American director Asaph Polonsky, tells the story of a grieving father who finishes the week of mourning for his late son, and is urged by his wife to return to their routine. Instead, he gets high with a young neighbor and sets out to discover that there are still things in his life worth living for.

Produced by Naomi Levari and Saar Yogev of Black Sheep Film Prods., “One Week and a Day” is a debut by Polonsky, who is an AFI graduate and former Student Academy Award nominee. The film was developed in the Jerusalem Film Lab and EAVE, and won the 2015 Haifa Film Festival Work in Progress Award.
