Strand Releasing announced that it has acquired all US rights to Fatih Akin‘s “The Edge of Heaven,” Germany’s entry for this year’s Academy Awards. “Heaven” won the Prix du Scenario Award at this past Cannes Film Festival, and its Akin’s fifth feature, following the success of “Head-On.” “We’re thrilled to have Fatih’s latest, and am happy to continue our relationship with such a talented filmmaker,” said Jon Gerrans of Strand. “‘Head-On’ remains one of our most highly acclaimed titles in our library.” [Peter Knegt]
