iW NEWS | NonStop Paddles "Ping Pong"

Scandinavian-based sales company NonStop Sales has signed international distribution rights to Swedish director Jens Jonsson's "The King of Ping Pong," which won the world cinema jury prize in the dramatic category as well as a world cinematography award at the recent Sundance Film Festival. NonStop Sales will have the film's market premiere at the European Film Market coinciding with the Berlinale. The film centers on an ostracized and bullied teenager who excels only in ping pong descends into an acrimonious struggle with his younger, more popular brother when the truth about their family history and their father surfaces over the course of their spring break. In other NonStop news, the company is touting the box office success in Norway for "The Kautokeino Rebellion" and "Switch," both of which will screen in the European Film Market. [Brian Brooks]
