Visit Films closes deal with Ascot Elite for Herzog's Cave




Ryan Kampe of New York's Visit Films has closed a deal with Ascot Elite for German-speaking territories on Werner Herzog's Cave Of Forgotten Dreams.

Kampe also licensed rights for the former Yugoslavia to Discovery after presenting the film to buyers at the EFM in Berlin, where he announced a French deal with Metropolitan.

Cave Of Forgotten Dreams played as a special screening at the Berlinale and premiered in Toronto last year. It chronicles the discovery of wall paintings dating back approximately 30,000 years in a cave in central France.

The film previously sold to IFC for the US and will open through Picture House in the UK, Star Sands in Japan and Against Gravity in Poland.

Buyers see the light as Visit starts sales on Cave




Visit Films has started talks with buyers on Werner Herzog's 3D documentary Cave Of Forgotten Dreams after acquiring international sales excluding the UK, Japan and select television rights.

Company president Ryan Kampe has licensed French rights to Metropolitan. The film premiered at Toronto and recounts the discovery of wall paintings in the Chauvet Cave in central France dating back some 30,000 years.

Cave Of Forgotten Dreams will play in special presentation here and previously sold to IFC for the US, Picture House for the UK, Against Gravity for Poland and Star Sands for Japan.

'We have been in love with the film since its Toronto premiere and are so pleased to be working with Werner and his team,' Kampe said. 'Werner's singular vision has allowed him to craft a film which uses 3D to its full effect and helps bring the medium away from popcorn movies and into films of true substance and beauty.'

Visit's EFM slate include the Sundance pair Jess + Moss from Clay Jeter which screens in Generation here, as well as Ali Samadi Ahadi's German-Iranian documentary and Lola entry The Green Wave.

Cold Weather in the New York Times




An Indie Gumshoe in Oregon's Gloom

COLD WEATHER, the third feature by young filmmaker Aaron Katz, begins in the modestly introspective vein of many a low-budget American indie. On an indefinite break from college, Doug has returned home to Portland, Ore., where he's staying with his sister, Gail. The film appears poised to explore their shared history and private uncertainty, the simultaneous distance and closeness that sometimes defines adult sibling dynamics.

But with little warning, odd elements start creeping in, as if from another movie. Clues to shadowy goings-on are discovered in motel rooms and amid library stacks. The mopey protagonist turns intrepid gumshoe. There is a missing suitcase of money, and there are occasions for stakeouts and chases — just like in the movies.
