Uncork’d Entertainment continues to diversify with the acqusition and release of the offshore arthouse hit My Italy.
Described as “a film about a life, art, food, film, everything & nothing”, the movie tells of a director and his assistant who are traveling around Europe to seek financing for a film with and about four international artists: Polish Krzysztof Bednarski, Danish Thorsten Kirchhoff, American Mark Kostabi and Malaysian H.H. Lim; all of them stars from the world of art and in love with Italy.
The film, due for release in October, is one of several foreign films aquired by CEO Keith Leopard in recent tmes.
Leopard, a veteran of the home entertainment industry, has also acquired The Spiderwebhouse from Mara Eibl-Eibesfeldt, which releases the same month.
The Spiderwebhouse : 12-year-old Jonas confidently takes on the responsibility for his two younger siblings when his mother leaves them behind for a weekend away. He isolates himself and his siblings more and more and they start to drift away into their own fantastic world. But the weekend grows into weeks in which the three children hear nothing from their mother. Food and money have long since run out and the house has become more like a haunted castle.
In a 2016 interview with Variety, Leopard said : “I know that people will ask what a guy like me is doing with these films, but at heart I’m a product guy. I want to be that distributor that really is an ally to the filmmaker/producer/sales company, that personally works on each movie, reports on time and if there were revenues on the film, pays them on time.”
Uncork’d Entertainment’s previous releases include Cold Moon, Demons, The Ice Cream Truck, Don’t Be Bad, Peelers and They Call Me Jeeg.
