Regent Releasing has acquired the North American distribution rights to writer-director Lynn Roth's historical drama "The Little Traitor." The film, produced by Roth and Eitan Evan, won the best feature award at the 2008 Palm Beach International Film Festival. Taking place in 1947 Palestine, just months before Israel becomes a state, the film follows an 11-year old who wants nothing more than the occupying British to leave his land. "Lynn Roth's accomplished and timely film continues to expand on Regent's mission to showcase powerful and thought-provoking world cinema," said Mark Reinhart, West Coast General Manager and Executive Vice President Distribution and Acquisitions, Regent, in a statement. The film will be released in select theaters later this Fall.
