‘My Friend Victoria’ Acquired by Zeitgeist Films

'My Friend Victoria' Acquired by Zeitgeist Films

Zeitgeist Films has acquired Jean-Paul Civeyrac’s “My Friend Victoria,” which premiered at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Rendez-Vous with French Cinema.
The film was adapted from a short story by Doris Lessing, which follows Victoria, a young Parisian orphan who is overwhelmed by an evening with a bourgeois family. 

Zeitgeist Co-Presidents Emily Russo and Nancy Gerstman said that they were thrilled by the acquisition, noting that the mostly unknown cast is brilliant. 

“Civeyrac is a real auteur,” they said. “Lessing is a complex writer and everyone involved has made a touching and accessible film from her work.”
“My Friend Victoria” will open in New York and Los Angeles in the early fall.
