IFC acquires rights to 'Fermat's Room'

Spanish thriller debuted last week at Tribeca

NEW YORK -- IFC Entertainment has acquired North American rights to the Spanish thriller "Fermat's Room" ("La Habitacion de Fermat"), which had its North American premiere at the Tribeca fest Friday.

Luis Piedrahita and Rodrigo Sopena's feature debut tells the story of four mathematicians with checkered pasts who find themselves in a room where the walls are literally closing in on them. Only their intellects can solve the riddle that will save their lives.

The film will debut on IFC's Festival Direct VOD platform this summer.
