iW NEWS | "Of Time and City" For Strand

Strand Releasing has acquired all US rights to Terence Davies‘ “Of Time and City” from Hurricane Films in the UK. The deal was done via sales agent Hanway Films. The film is a “poetic ode to Liverpool” which is constructed with archival footage and narrated by Davies himself. It had its World Premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and has its North American Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this Sunday. “We’re thrilled to be working with Terence again, his loveletter to Liverpool is a true artistic inspiration to filmmaking,” said Marcus Hu, Co-President of Strand Releasing, in a statement. The deal was concluded by Strand Releasing’s Jon Gerrans and Hanway’s Thorsten Schumacher. Strand Releasing is planning for a January 2009 release. [Peter Knegt]
