Plexifilm goes ‘Blissfully’

Pic won prize at Cannes last year

Gotham distributor Plexifilm has picked up North American rights to Thai film “Blissfully Yours.”

Deal is Plexifilm’s second with helmer Apichatpong “Joe” Weerasethakul. Distrib released his debut film, “Mysterious Object at Noon,” earlier this year on DVD.

“Blissfully Yours” won the Un Certain Regard prize at the 2002 Cannes fest, as well as honors in Buenos Aires and Tokyo.

Story follows a group of friends over the course of a day, from their morning at the doctor’s office to an afternoon rendezvous in the jungle.

“The genius of this film is in its simplicity. The highly charged sexual and political nature of the story is effortlessly contrived,” Plexifilm CEO Gary Hustwit said.

Distrib plans a fall theatrical release and a DVD release in 2004.

Plexifilm’s music docu “Gigantic” hit theaters last week.
