Wolfe Fills Out Theatrical Slate with "Thoughts" and "City"
by Eugene Hernandez
Wolfe has added a pair of films to its emerging theatrical slate. The company, which opened "Adored: Diary of a Porn Star" -- its first release -- in Los Angeles over the weekend, has acquired North American rights to Achim van Borries' "Love in Thoughts" and Cesc Gay's "In The City."
Wolfe, a leading home video distributor of queer film for twenty years, recently took the leap into theatrical distribution. The company's release of "Adored" will expand to other cities over the coming weeks. Wolfe will release "Goldfish Memory" in August. President Maria Lynn heads the company with acquisitions and theatrical distribution consultant Orly Ravid serving in a key post.
"There are some incredible lesbian and gay films and stories out there," said Wolfe's Maria Lynn in a statement. "We love to help filmmakers find their audience and we are simply the best company to introduce a diverse range of new films to both mainstream retailers and our loyal base of customers."
Achim van Borries' "Love In Thoughts," which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and later played at the Berlinale, looks at five German students involved in a tale of murder and suicide. The director wrote the German hit "Goodbye, Lenin!" which stars Daniel Bruehl, a lead in "Thoughts." The company plans to release the movie this Fall.
A multiple Goya award nominee, "In The City" by Cesc Gay ("Nico and Dani") stars Eduard Fernandez in the story of a group of thirty-somethings living in Barcelona. Wolfe plans to take Gay's "In The City" to key Fall film festivals before releasing the movie in theaters early next year.
