Alexander Sokurov's "Alexandra" has been acquired for U.S. distribution by The Cinema Guild, the company announced today. Described as the story of "a Russian grandmother who travels to a remote military outpost to visit her grandson," "Alexandra" is set to screen later this week at the New York Film Festival after a debut earlier this year in Cannes. The pact was brokered by Rezo Films. 'Alexandra's' story of a nation mired in a seemingly endless war should resonate with many in this country," said Cinema Guild's Ryan Krivoshey, in a statement.
