Strand bridges 'Rivers'

Theatrical release is planned

Strand Releasing has acquired North American rights to John Young’s "Rivers Wash over Me," the tale of a 15-year-old from Brooklyn who is sent to live with his aunt in rural Alabama.

The film stars Darien Sills Evans, Derrick L. Middleton, who won a best actor award from Outfest, and Elizabeth Dennis.

It will have a limited theatrical release in late May or early June.
Strand handled the home video rights for Young's "Parallel Sons" as well as all rights for his previous effort, "The Reception."

The deal was negotiated by Strand co-president Jon Gerrans directly with Young.
