Strand goes a 'Year Without Sex'

Acquired U.S. rights to writer-director Sarah Watt's film

Strand Releasing has acquired all U.S. rights to Sarah Watt's "My Year Without Sex" from the Works International.

Written and directed by Watt, the film stars Sacha Horler and Matt Day as a couple who are forced to abstain from sex because of the woman's medical condition.

The Australian film was produced by Bridget Ikin, who produced Watt's previous film, "Look Both Ways." A spring release is planned.

The deal was negotiated between Strand's Jon Gerrans and the Works' Joy Wong at AFM.
