YORGOS LANTHIMOS’ “ALPS” GOES TO KINO LORBER
Kino Lorber has acquired U.S. rights to Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos‘ Alps, the follow-up to his Oscar-nominated cult hit Dogtooth.
According to indieWIRE, the film will be released in the spring of 2012. Kino also released Dogtooth in the States.
The fourth feature by Lathimos, Alps follows an unusual group who offers grieving family members the opportunity to have their troupe reenact and continue the lives of deceased loved ones.
The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival, where it won Best Screenplay, and the Toronto International Film Festival. It will screen next at AFI Fest in L.A.
If we learned anything from Dogtooth, we’ll be expecting Lanthimos to give us an original (often comically bafalling) story. And if we’re luck more dancing scenes like this:
