Film Movement picks up 'Storm'

Lands North American distribution rights

Film Movement has acquired North American distribution rights to Hans-Christian Schmid's political thriller "Storm." The film will bow theatrically in the late fall and will also be available via video on demand.

A German, Danish and Dutch co-production, the film stars Kerry Fox as a prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal in the Hague who is leading a trial against a former commander of the Yugoslavian National Army who is accused of the deportation and later killing of dozens of Bosnian-Muslim civilians.

"Storm" won a number of prizes at the Berlin International Film Festival, including the Amnesty International Film Prize.

Film Movement president Adley Gartenstein and Susan Wendt of TrustNordisk negotiated the acquisition.
