Tabu is the fourth pickup for Adopt Films from this year’s recent Berlin International Film Festival’s main competition. It won the festival’s Alfred Bauer Prize and the FIPRESCI international critics award. Portuguese filmmaker Miguel Gomes directed and co-wrote with Mariana Ricardo the romancer about an impossible love affair set in colonial Africa. Luís Urbano and Sandro Aguilar produced. Match Factory’s Brigitte Suárez and Michael Weber negotiated the deal with Adopt’s co-managing execs Jeff Lipsky and Tim Grady. Adopt plans a theatrical release in New York and Los Angeles in late December followed by a larger rollout in first-quarter 2013. Tabu joins fellow Adopt Berlin pickups Ceasar Must Die, which took the Golden Bear; Barbara, by Best Director winner Christian Petzold; and Silver Bear title Sister from Ursula Meier.
