Gotham-based foundation Global Film Initiative has snapped up North American rights to Indonesian movie “The Photograph,” which had its European bow this month at the Czech Republic’s Karlovy Vary Festival.

Pic, about a fallen woman who starts over with the help of a photographer, was directed by Nan Achnas and produced by Achnas, Shanty Harmayn and Paquita Widjaja-Aftef.

Buenos Aires-based sales agent FilmSharks said Global Film Initiative is seeking a release in 40 North American cities.

“The Photograph” was released in Indonesia last July and screened at South Korea’s Pusan Film Festival in October. At Karlovy Vary, it scooped the special jury prize and top honors from the ecumenical jury.
