(New York, NY) November 7,
2013—Oscilloscope Laboratories announced today that it has acquired US rights
to James Byrkit’s feature directorial debut, COHERENCE. The film had its world
premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin, where it won the Next Wave Best
Screenplay award, and has since gone on to play the Sitges Film Festival (where
it again took home the Best Screenplay prize) and the Philadelphia Film
Festival, receiving widespread critical and audience acclaim at every stop
along the way. The film will continue to play at festivals in the coming months
on its way to a traditional theatrical release in 2014.  
 
On the night of an astrological
anomaly, eight friends at a dinner party become subject to a troubling chain of
strange and puzzling goings-on.  Part cerebral
sci-fi and part relationship drama, COHERENCE is a tightly focused, intimately
shot film that quickly ratchets up with tension and mystery.
About the acquisition, O-scope’s
David Laub and Dan Berger said, “COHERENCE is an incredibly smart, incredibly original,
and incredibly impressive debut.  With
hints of a low-budget sci-fi mindfuck like Primer, and a deep, engaging, and
emotionally resonant take on interpersonal relationships channeling the depth
of Woody Allen at his best, it’s without a doubt unlike anything we’ve seen
previously.”  
 
Filmmaker James Byrkit said, “I couldn’t
be happier to be with Oscilloscope.  As soon as I saw their office, I
decided that either we were going to shoot a 1940’s heist film there or we’d distribute
a movie together.  Those guys are smart, savvy, and incredibly current,
even without the lab coats.  COHERENCE is a very different kind of science
fiction film, and Oscilloscope knows how to reach both movie fanatics and the
date night crowd that will love it.”
 
Byrkit is represented by Gersh,
who co-repped domestic rights with P. Jennifer Dana and negotiated the deal on
behalf of filmmakers. Independent Sales is at AFM repping international.
 

COHERENCE is a Bellanova
Films/Ugly Duckling Films production and produced by Lene Bausager.
