French New Wave icon Jean-Luc Godard’s 3D Goodbye To Language shared the jury prize this year at Cannes — it was his first win ever at Cannes. Now the experimental pic is getting a U.S. release beginning in October after Kino Lorber acquired all North American rights. It will open first at the Film Society of Lincoln Center and IFC Center in NYC late in the month, followed by a national theatrical rollout on 3D screens; a VOD and 3D Blu-ray release is planned for 2015.
The pic is 69 minutes long and centers on a couple whose relationship breaks down, with the second half taking a dog’s-eye view of the world. Check out the trailer here.
The deal was negotiated between Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber and Carole Baraton, head of international sales at Wild Bunch.
