‘Clouds’ rolls in for Strand

Pic to continue festival circuit for summer

NEW YORK — Strand Releasing has acquired North American rights to Julian Hernandez’s film about a gay teenager in Mexico City, which premiered at the Berlin fest under the awkward title “A Thousand Clouds of Peace Fence the Sky, Love; Your Being Love Will Never End.”

Deal was finalized during Cannes by Strand co-president Jon Gerrans with Mexican state film org Imcine. Gerrans confirmed that the distrib will simplify the title for release, probably to “A Thousand Clouds.”

Debuting writer-director Hernandez’s poetic drama, shot in black-and-white, chronicles a 17-year-old’s frustrated search for comfort in a trail of empty sexual encounters after breaking up with his boyfriend. Pic won the Teddy award for best gay feature at Berlin.

Strand is looking to gain exposure for the film at festivals over the summer and is planning a limited theatrical run in early 2004.

Also at Cannes, Strand Releasing closed with Bavaria Film Intl. on North American rights to German director Kai S. Pieck’s dark psychological drama “The Child I Never Was” and Danish helmer Hella Joof’s love-triangle comedy “Shake It All About.”
