Fall festival darling "Silent Souls" from director Alexsei Fedorchenko has been nabbed by Shadow Distribution for North American distribution. Shadow plans to release the film during the second quarter of 2011.

Based on the novel "The Buntings" by Aist Sergeyev, "Silent Souls" tells the story of a man and his companion who embark on a journey to cremate the body of the man's beloved wife on a riverbank where they once spent their honeymoon. indieWIRE's own Shane Danielsen, who caught the film during this year's Venice Film Festival, said of the film: "Breathtaking... 'Silent Souls'.... announced its excellence from the very first shot. I watched it unfold in a state of rapt fascination; two days later, unable to get it out of my head, I went back to see it again. Fedorchenko’s direction was masterful - no other term applies - and the soundtrack was extraordinary."

Shadow president Ken Eisen added to the praise in a press release, stating: "'Silent Souls' is the most profoundly moving, unfathomably beautiful and truly transcendental movie experience I’ve had in this decade. It's an honor, a pleasure and a true mission to be able to bring it to North America."
