Philadelphia-based specialty distributor Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired two new films, “Notre Paradis” and “Out in the Open,” for U.S. distribution. The company plans theatrical releases for both in the first quarter of 2013: “Paradis” in January and “Open” in February.

Written and directed by Gael Morel, “Notre Paradis” follows an aging pickpocket and prostitute who recruits a young man as his lover and accomplice as they scour the streets of Paris for marks. The film has played at Outfest and the Toronto LGBT festival.

The documentary “Out in the Open,” which debuted at Outfest, explores coming to terms with one’s sexual orientation through interviews with public figures such as Carson Cressley, Eric Roberts, Greg Louganis, Josh Strickland and Cassandra Church.

Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff negotiated the “Paradis” deal with Frederique Rouault of Alfama Films, and Wolff negotiated the “Open” deal with Ben Milliken of RealStream Productions.

The company will next release Xavier Dolan’s Cannes premiere “Laurence Anyways,” which will have its U.S. premiere at AFI Fest Saturday, Nov. 3.
