Juan Carlos Rulfo's Mexican doc "In the Pit," which won the Jury Prize for World Cinema Documentary at this year's Sundance Film Festival has been picked up by Kino International the company announced Friday. The film, which will be released in January, 2007, is described as an "in-depth and remarkably candid portrait of the workers who built the Second Deck of Mexico City's inner Periferico freeway. Although a major architectural structure, the most impressive information about this elevated freeway is the sheer number of lives that it impacts." After opening in New York and Los Angeles, Kino will expand the film to further cities. [Brian Brooks]
