Global Screen picks up award-winning drama 4 KINGS

Munich, Feb 05, 2016 | Global Screen has picked up world-wide distribution rights to German-speaking drama 4 KINGS, which took the Best Film Award at the Rome International Film Festival / Alice Nella Città 2015.

4 KINGS is a charming debut feature about four very different teens who have to spend the Holiday Season in a psychiatric clinic for adolescents. Locked up with each other, their own quirks and an unconventional psychiatrist, they experience an unforgettable Christmas full of surprises, pain, and laughs.  

4 KINGS boasts a powerful cast of some of Germany's most interesting up-and-coming acting talents: Paula Beer (François Ozon’s “Frantz”), Moritz Leu and European Shooting Stars Jella Haase (“Combat Girls”, “Suck Me Shakespeer”, “Heidi”) and Jannis Niewöhner (“Jonathan” – World Premiering in Berlin/Panorama section, “Ruby Red”, “Sapphire Blue”, “Windstorm 2”). Charming and sarcastic, with subtle and sympathetic humor, freshman director Theresa von Eltz helms this coming-of-age drama with a sure hand. A tragicomedy that takes the worries of troubled youths seriously, letting them find new hope, friendship and community, without sentimentality.  

Alice Buquoy, Senior Sales and Acquisitions Manager at Global Screen says, "This very special and sympathetic film gives us an intense inside view into a closed world. Theresa von Eltz creates a mysterious atmosphere in this film that will appeal to international audiences. We are excited to present it to the international buyers in Berlin.”  

4 KINGS is produced by C-Films and Tatami Films. Global Screen will start selling the film at EFM and can be found during the Berlinale at their office in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, 4th floor, Suite 439.
