Kino adds to ’08 slate

Studio acquires rights to three foreign pics

Kino Intl. continues to live up to its name, acquiring domestic distrib rights to three foreign films. The latest additions to the 2008 slate are Chinese feature “Blind Mountain,” Russian doc “Poisoned by Polonium: The Litvinenko Files,” and Israeli pic “My Father My Lord,” which picked up the narrative feature nod at Tribeca earlier this year.

“Blind Mountain” is the second feature from Yang, whose debut, “Blind Shaft,” garnered kudos on the fest circuit in 2003. New pic, which follows a young woman snared by the sex slavery industry, played in Cannes this year.

Director Andrei Nekrasov’s “Poisoned by Polonium” examines the murder of Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko in conjunction with the war in Chechnya and the history of the KGB. Pic, formerly titled “Rebellion: The Litvinenko Case” unspooled in special screenings at Cannes and later played at Toronto.

David Volach’s “My Father My Lord” retells the biblical story of Abraham and Isaac in the modern context of an ultra-orthodox Jewish community.

“Blind Mountain” and “My Father My Lord” are set for March release dates in Gotham, with Los Angeles releases to follow shortly and major cities soon thereafter. “Poisoned” is tentatively set for March or April in New York and L.A.
