iW NEWS | Zeitgeist Gets "Stranded"

By Indiewire | Indiewire June 23, 2008 at 2:46AM

As it prepares to celebrates its 20th anniversary with a retrospective at MoMA this week, Zeitgeist Films has announced a deal for U.S. theatrical and home video rights to Gonzalo Arijon's "Stranded: I've Come From a Plane the Crashed in the Mountains." Uruguayan director Arijon's film is the story the story of the survivors of a plane crash in the South American Andes 35 years ago, profiling the survivors, who subsisted the ten weeks in the freezing weather by consuming the remains of those who died after the plane went down. Winner of the jury prize at last year's International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (where indieWIRE first reported on the film), the doc had its North American premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this year. "This is truly one of the most remarkable stories turned into one of the most haunting films we've ever encountered," Zeitgeist co-president Emily Russo (who negotiated the deal with Emmanuelle Erbsmann at ARTE France) and co-president Nancy Gerstman said today in a statement, "We expect it to have a great theatrical life and beyond, as this films provides a truly an indelible experience." After releasing its recent acquisition, Sundance Documentary Grand Jury Prize winner "Trouble The Water," Zeitgeist will open the movie at New York City's Film Forum on October 22, 2008, followed by a national roll-out.
