Breaking News : SCREEN // ‘To The Night’ starring Caleb Landry Jones gets sales deal ahead of Karlovy Vary berth
Psychological drama To The Night, starring Caleb Landry Jones (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), has been boarded for world sales by Paris-based Reel Suspects.
The film, which is the English-language debut from Austrian writer-director Peter Brunner, portrays an artist who suffers from PTSD after losing his parents in a tragic fire when he was a child. When his memories of the event are reignited one night, he sets off on a quest to face his past and build the family he never had.
To The Night is set to premiere in the main competition of the upcoming 53rd Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (June 29 – July 7). Director Brunner’s previous feature, Those Who Fall Have Wings, won the special jury prize at Karlovy Vary in 2015.
Co-starring in the film are Eléonore Hendricks (Heaven Knows What) and Abbey Lee (The Neon Demon). It was shot entirely in New York and produced by Austrian outfit FreibeuterFilm in co-production with Ulrich Seidl Film and in collaboration with US company Loveless. The project received financial support from the Austrian Film Institute as well as the ORF Film/Fernseh-Abkommen.
“We are really proud to work on Peter Brunner’s third feature, and extremely happy to present it to the Karlovy Vary audience,” commented Matteo Lovadina, CEO of Reel Suspects.
