Cristi Puiu’s “Aurora” Picked Up by Cinema Guild

Cristi Puiu's "Aurora" Picked Up by Cinema Guild

Cristi Puiu’s follow up to “The Death of Mr. Lazarescu,” “Aurora,” has been acquired by The Cinema Guild for U.S. distribution. “Aurora” premiered at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival and played at this year’s New York Film Festival. The Guild plans to release it into theaters in 2011.

A gripping character study, “Aurora” is described as a “a puzzle of a movie about one man’s break with society,” and marks the second installment in Puiu’s planned series “Six Stories from the Outskirts of Bucharest.”

“Neither slow nor fast, ‘Aurora’ is an immensely powerful and satisfying film – a thriller stripped to its core – with its own precise rhythm,” said Ryan Krivoshey of The Cinema Guild, in a statement. “It’s an audacious work that deserves to be seen on the big screen. We are delighted to be working with Cristi Puiu on its U.S. release.”

The deal was negotiated by Krivoshey with Celine Lin of The Coproduction Office.
