IFC Films acquires Argentine film 'Puzzle'

Natalia Smirnoff's movie debuted in Berlin

IFC Films has acquired North American rights to the Argentine film "Puzzle," directed by Natalia Smirnoff, which had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Produced by Carousel Films' Gabriele Pastore and Caroline Dhainaut from La Ninas Pictures, the film stars Maria Onetta as an older housewife who discovers she has a knack for solving puzzles.
IFC Films will release "Puzzle" this year via its IFC in Theaters platform, which combines a theatrical release with simultaneous VOD availability.

The deal was negotiated by IFC's Elizabeth Nastro with Emilie Georges and Tanja Meissner of Memento Films International.
