'The Here After'

Soda Pictures in Britain and Atnine Film in South Korea have pounced on the Directors' Fortnight title from first-time director Magnus von Horn.

The Here After, the directorial debut of Swedish helmer Magnus von Horn, has locked up a pair of major territory deals following its premiere in Cannes' Directors' Fortnight sidebar.

Soda Pictures in the U.K. and Atnine Film Co. of South Korean have snatched up the drama, which centers on a man who returns home to his small, tight-knit community after serving time in prison — but his crime has been neither forgotten nor forgiven.

TrustNordisk is handling international sales on the film and has several other territories in negotiation. Nour Films is handling distribution of The Here After in France. Nordisk Film will bow the picture in Sweden, with Gutek Film handling Poland.
