iW NEWS | Koch Lorber and Red Envelope Take "Water Lilies"

All U.S. and Canadian rights to Celine Sciamma‘s “Water Lillies” (La Naissance des Pieuvres) have been acquired in a joint deal by Koch Lorber Films and Red Envelope Entertainment, the companies announced Monday. The film, set in the summer at a suburban Parisian municipal swimming pool, debuted in the Un Certain Regard section at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Richard Lorber from Koch Lorber and Liesl Copland from Red Envelope negotiated the pact with Film Distribution‘s Nicolas Brigaud-Robert and Didar Domehri. Koch Lorber is planning a national theatrical release beginning early next year, followed by a DVD release later in the year. [Eugene Hernandez]
