Sundance Selects Acquires 'Two Lives,' Germany's Official Selection for Best Foreign Film

Sundance Selects has picked up the US rights to “Two Lives,” directed by Georg Mass and starring Juliane Kohler, Liv Ullman and Ken Duken. The German film follows Katrine, a woman who was the child of a Norwegian woman and German occupation soldier during WWII, whose life is going well until her lawyer asks her and her mother to witness in a trial against the Norwegian state on behalf of her children. When she resists this proposition, a plethora of secrets begin to surface, jeopardizing the well-being of Katrine and her family. 

Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films, said: “Georg Maas has crafted a taut drama that features brilliant performances from Juliane Kohler and the legendary Liv Ullmann. We look forward to bringing it to US audiences.”

“Two Lives” has been selected by Germany to serve as the contender for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards next year.
