After recently acquiring Berlin Film Festival opener Farewell, My Queen, indie distributor Cohen Media Group has picked up The Other Son (Le Fils De L’Autre) for the US. The EFM title is being handled by Paris-based Cité Films. Directed by Lorraine Levy, the film stars Emmanuelle Devos, Pascal Elbé, Jules Sitruck and Mehdi Dehbi. Written by Natalie Saugeon, Levy and Noam Fitoussi, it tells the story of an Israeli teen who discovers he was switched at birth with the child of a Palestinian family on the West Bank. The lives of the two families are suddenly shattered by the revelation that forces them to reconsider their identities, values and beliefs. Deal was negotiated by Cohen chairman/CEO Charles S. Cohen and Cité managing director Raphael Berdugo.
