Zeitgeist Films has acquired all North American rights to Guido Santi and Tina Mascara's "Chris and Don. A Love Story." The deal was brokered by the film's executive producer Andrew Herwitz from The Film Sales Company. The crowd pleaser, which debuted at the Telluride Film Festival and then screened at AFI Fest in Los Angeles, will be released this summer, starting in New York and L.A. to qualify for Oscar consideration, according to an announcement. It will then expand to other national markets. The film, produced by Julia Scott and James White along with Mascara and Santi, is the story of a 30 year lover affair between writer Christopher Isherwood and painter Don Bachardy. "We are extremely pleased to release this wonderful, intimate, and poignant love story that celebrates its literary and artistic roots in every frame," noted Zeitgeist co-president Emily Russo, in a statement.
