Zeitgeist Gets U.S. Rights to "Into Great Silence"

All U.S. rights to Philip Groening's "Into Great Silence" have been acquired by Zeitgeist Films. The company brokered the deal with Bavaria Film International. The film, which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and won the documentary World Cinema special jury prize at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, is a portrait of the Grande Chartreuse monastery in the French Alps. The company is planning a late February/early March 2007 release. Zeitgeist co-president Nancy Gerstman negotiated the deal with Thorsten Schaumann of Bavaria Film International. The company also worked with Bavaria Film on "Nowhere In Africa," winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 2003 and then "Sophie Scholl: The Final Days," nominated for an Academy Award in 2005.
