By Indiewire | Indiewire September 9, 2006 at 3:22AM

IFC Entertainment has announced a deal for North American rights to Hans-Christian Schmid's "Requiem" and will release the film through IFC First Take on October 20th, 2006. The film is having its North American premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival and is the true story of a woman from an extremely religious German family, battling epilepsy, who falls in love and apparently becomes possessed, in the words of an announcement, experiencing "a frightening rush of grotesque faces and voices." The film, starring Sandra Hueller, has already won the Bavarian Film Award for Best Young Actress, the Silver Bear and Fipresci prizes at the Berlinale, and several nominations and wins at the German Film Awards. To make the deal, Jonathan Sehring, Liz Nastro and Ryan Werner represented IFC with Thorsten Schaumann from Bavaria Film International. [Eugene Hernandez]
