iW NEWS | Cinema Guild Gets "Yella"

Christian Petzold‘s “Yella,” from the 2007 Berlinale, has been acquired by The Cinema Guild in a deal for U.S. distribution rights. Described as “a daring metaphysical thriller about a young woman’s efforts to escape her past,” the film will open in theaters later this year. At the Berlin International Film Festival, lead actress Nina Hoss won the Silver Bear for best actress. Ryan Krivoshey, Director of Distribution for The Cinema Guild negotiated the deal with Michael Weber for The Match Factory. “‘Yella’ is an extraordinary film that uses the conventions of a Hollywood thriller to offer a bracing critique of our capitalist society,” commented Ryan Krivoshey, in a statement. “Christian Petzold is one of the most innovative young directors working today, and we are very excited to be releasing his new picture.” [Eugene Hernandez]
