Film Movement takes 'Jaffa'

Late summer release is planned

Film Movement has acquired North American rights to Keren Yedaya’s 'Jaffa,' a drama about a young Jewish woman who falls in love with an Arab mechanic.

The film, which played the Cannes and Toronto film festivals, will receive a limited theatrical run and will be offered on VOD in late summer.

The acquisition was negotiated by Film Movement president Adley Gartenstein and vp Meghan Wurtz with Sebastien Chesneau of Rezo Films.
