A24 Acquires SXSW Winner 'Krisha,' Will Distribute and Produce Trey Edward Shults' Second Feature

A24 announced today that it has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Trey Edward Shults’ first feature film “Krisha,” as well as signed on to distribute his upcoming production.
“Krisha” tells the story of a woman who returns to her family after years of absence. It recently premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in March to rave reviews, winning grand jury and audience awards for narrative feature. Our SXSW review described it as powerful and intense with an extraordinary lead. 
A24 will also produce and distribute Shults’ second feature, “It Comes At Night,” a psychological horror film which follows “a father who will stop at nothing to protect his wife and son from a malevolent, mysterious presence terrorizing them right outside their doorstep.”
“Trey is an artist on the rise and we are proud to partner with him,” said A24. “His unique approach, singular style, confident storytelling and edge shines through ‘Krisha’ and we are excited to collaborate with such an exceptionally talented filmmaker at the beginning of what will no doubt be a long, celebrated career.”
