Kino Lorber has acquired North American rights to Polish director Agnieszka Holland’s migrant crisis drama Green Border. The film, which won Venice’s Special Jury Prize, explores the migrant crisis on the “green border” between Belarus and Poland, through the eyes of refugees trapped in the inhospitable terrain, activists trying to help them and border guards.
The drama hit the headlines worldwide in September following a political backlash in Poland, after the film angered the then ruling right-wing, anti-migrant coalition led by the Law and Justice (PiS) party for the film’s underlying critique of its policies.
Polish distributor Kino Świat pushed on with the Polish release nonetheless with Holland doing her promotional tour with security guards by her side.
PiS lost its parliamentary majority in general elections in October and a centre-left coalition led by Donald Tusk is expected to take the reins of power in the coming weeks.Read more on deadline.com
