By Indiewire | Indiewire September 9, 2007 at 9:30AM

All North American rights to Jacques Nolot's "Before I Forget" (Avant Que J'Oublie) have been acquired by Strand Releasing, the company announced late Saturday night. The film is currently screening in the Contemporary World Cinema section of the Toronto International Film Festival and was also in the Director's Fortnight in Cannes in May. The deal was negotiated between Strand bo-president, Jon Gerrans and Claude Nouchi, a consultant for Colifilms Diffusion. The film deals with Pierre (played by Nolot) as an aging writer facing writers block, dealing with hustlers, anti-depressants, while keenly facing his fears and addressing them in an edgy filmic format similar to his last venture. "We're thrilled to be working with both Mr. Nolot and Mr. Nouchi" said Gerrans, in a statement. "This is a a daring, edgy film that is reminscent of French new wave films that push the envelope in terms of content and form." [Brian Brooks]
