Josephine Decker’s ‘Butter’ and ‘Lovely’ Bought by Cinelicious

Cinelicious Pics has acquired all North American rights to Josephine Decker’s “Butter on the Latch” and “Thou Wast Mild and Lovely,” above.

A theatrical and VOD release is planned for November.

Tyro distrib Cinelicious Pics aims to bring an eclectic mix of U.S. indie and foreign features and docs to auds via theatrical release, VOD and Blu-ray. It also handles 4K-restored arthouse and cult classics, brought to pristine viewing quality by sister post and digital restoration studio Cinelicious.

The deal was negotiated by Cinelicious Pics’ president Paul Korver, president of business affairs Kristine Blumensaadt and exec VP Dennis Bartok, with Ben Weiss and Meghan Oliver from Paradigm and Craig F. Cohen of McCue Sussmane & Zapfel.

“Paul and I are incredibly excited to be working with Josephine on her first two features, which have a beautiful, sensual, poetic and intensely visual style that sets her apart from many indie filmmakers today,” says Bartok.  “Her work reminds me in a wonderful way of filmmakers like David Lynch and Nicolas Roeg but with a voice all her own.”

“I’m thrilled to be bursting out of the gate with a company who is also hurtling into new territory,” says Decker. “The guys at Cinelicious are passionate, visionary film lovers, incredibly hard workers and just good people. I feel very lucky to be working with them.”
