Leading sales company Fortissimo Films has announced the acquisition of worldwide rights to Apichatpong Weerasethakul's "Syndromes and A Century," one of seven films commissioned by the New Crowned Hope Festival celebrating Mozart. In an announcement, the film was described as exploring, "how we remember and how our sense of happiness can be acquired by something so insignificant. The film focuses on the memories of two doctors, one male and one female, and is inspired by the filmmaker's parents before they were lovers. The two reminiscences are told over two architectural spaces, one when the filmmaker was young, and the other in contemporary time." New Crowned Hope will run from mid-November through mid-December in Vienna. [Eugene Hernandez]
