New York, NY —The Cinema Guild announced today the acquisition of U.S. home video, digital and non-theatrical rights to Pedro Costa’s extraordinary “Ne Change Rien,” an utterly beautiful, unconventional concert film with French actress and singer Jeanne Balibar. It will be released on the non-theatrical market this spring and on DVD and VOD later this year.
“Ne Change Rien” was born as a result of the friendship between Jeanne Balibar, sound engineer Philippe Morel and Pedro Costa. The film follows Balibar from rehearsals to recording sessions, from concerts to singing lessons, and from an attic in Saintes-Marie-aux-Mines, France to the stage of a Tokyo café.
“Ne Change Rien” received its US premiere at the 2009 New York Film Festival. One of the world’s most important contemporary filmmakers, Pedro Costa’s other films include the celebrated “Letters from Fontainhas” trilogy, comprising “Colossal Youth” (2006), “In Vanda’s Room” (2000) and “Ossos” (1997), as well as “Where Does Your Hidden Smile Lie?” (2001), “Casa de Lava” (1994) and his first feature, “O Sangue” (1989).
“Since we launched our DVD label two years ago, we are thrilled it has become a place where people can discover amazing films like Pedro Costa’s ‘Ne Change Rien’ or Abbas Kiarostami’s ‘Shirin’ or Jose Guerin’s ‘In the City of Sylvia,’ among many others,” commented Ryan Krivoshey.
Upcoming home video releases from Cinema Guild include Jeff Malmberg’s “Marwencol,” available on Blu-ray and DVD on April 12, Damien Chazelle’s “Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench,” Jose Luis Guerin’s “In the City of Sylvia” and Agnes Varda’s “Daguerreotypes”
