Regent Releasing has announced its deal for U.S. rights to Majid Majidi's "The Song of Sparrows," the Iranian submission for the best foreign language Oscar. The film is set for a theatrical release next spring. Regent's Mark Reinhart brokered the deal with Fortissimo's Winnie Lau. Set in today's Tehran among the underprivileged, the film is described as exploring, "how a world of material goods and technology can corrupt man - making him lose spiritual purity and all-important connections to family, friends and nature." Anthony Kaufman recently took a closer look at this year's foreign language film Oscar race for indieWIRE. [Eugene Hernandez]
