iW News | KOCH Lorber Picks up "9 Star Hotel"

KOCH Lorer Films has acquired U.S. rights to Israeli direcor Ido Haar's doc "9 Star Hotel" (Malon 9 Kochavim), Richard Lorber, president of the company announced Friday. The film will have its North American debut in the world documentary competition at the Tribeca Film Festival, currently underway and will have its theatrical roll out beginning at New York's Film Forum on May 23 followed by a roll out nationwide. The film tells the story of Palestinian laborers who work in the occupied territories by day where their ancestors once lived building luxury homes for Israelis, and then return to their shanty communities at night. "'9 Star Hotel' is a powerful and humanity-filled film from a very talented new voice on the international documentary scene," commented Lorber in a statement. "Timely and compelling, it's sure to inform, generate discussion and emotion as only the best in non-fiction cinema can." [Brian Brooks]
