Brian O’Shea’s newly-formed sales and finance outfit The Exchange has finalized a multi-territory distribution deal with Sony Pictures Classics for Vera Farmiga’s directorial debut Higher Ground here at the EFM. SPC acquired all rights for France, the UK, Germany, Benelux, Scandinavia, Italy, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, India, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia. The film is set in a tight-knit spiritual community that’s thrown off-kilter when one of their own begins to question her faith. It’s inspired by screenwriter Carolyn S. Briggs’ memoir This Dark World and stars Farmiga, her sister Taissa Farmiga, John Hawkes and Donna Murphy. SPC released the film in the US last August. The Exchange is also handling Magic Magic with Juno Temple, Michael Cera, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Emily Browning.
