U.S. rights Oscar winner Danis Tanovic's latest, "Cirkus Columbia" have been picked up by Strand Releasing. The film is the fourth feature since his Academy Award winner, "No Man's Land," which took best foreign film in 2001. Strand plans a late fall 2011 roll out.

Full release below:

Strand Releasing has acquired all US rights to Academy Award winner Danis Tanovic’s latest film "Cirkus Columbia." Set in the early 90’s, this touching film follows a man’s return home to a small town and the rekindling relationship he builds with the son he never knew.

The deal was done between Jon Gerrans of Strand Releasing and Brigitte Suarez of The Match Factory. Strand has worked jointly with Match Factory on such titles as Palme D’or winner, "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives" and Fatih Akin’s "The Edge of Heaven."

“ We are delighted to be working again with our friends at Strand on this heartwarming and nostalgic film. In "Cirkus Columbia," director Tanovic is back to his Bosnian roots, shortly before the fall of the Berlin wall and the outbreak of the Balkan war. With its wonderful humor and cast , the film has proved an audience pleaser at festivals and sold to 30 territories. We are sure it will be received with enthusiasm by the American audiences,” said Suarez.

This is Tanovic’s fourth feature, his first film "No Man's Land" won both the Golden Globe as well as winning the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 2001.

"Cirkus Columbia" stars Miki Manojlovic whose credits include Emir Kusturica’s "When Father Was Away on Business," Francois Ozon’s "Criminal Lovers" and Sam Garbarski’s "Irina Palm," which he received a Best Actor nomination at the European Film Awards. The film also stars Mira Furlan from the TV series "Lost" and "Babylon 5."

Strand Releasing is based in Culver City, CA and is run by Gerrans and Marcus Hu. Strand’s current slate includes Catherine Breillat’s "The Sleeping Beauty," Claude and Nathan Miller’s "I'm Glad My Mother is Alive" Tom Tykwer’s "3," and Braden King’s "Here."

Strand plans for a late fall release.
