iW NEWS | Cinema Guild Gets Sokurov's Latest

Alexander Sokurov‘s “Alexandra” has been acquired for U.S. distribution by The Cinema Guild, the company announced today. Described as the story of “a Russian grandmother who travels to a remote military outpost to visit her grandson,” “Alexandra” is set to screen later this week at the New York Film Festival after a debut earlier this year in Cannes.
