Neo closes first two acquisitions at Efm

New UK distribution company Neo has made its first two acquisitions in Berlin.

At the Efm, Neo (New Entertainment Organisation) has acquired Closer To the Moon from Celluloid Dreams and producer Michael Fitzgerald.

The English-language comedy drama from Nae Carafil stars Vera Farmiga and Mark Strong. It is a co-production with Italy’s Ugo Tucci; Poland’s Alessandro Leone; and Romania’s Bobby Paulescu.

It has been picked up for Us release by IFC for release in June and Poland’s Ultra+Monolith.

The second pick up, from Media Luna, is Perfect Obedience (Obediencia Perfecta), the controversial Mexican winner of the 2014 World Film Festival Montreal (Ffm).

The film, written and directed by Luis Urquiza, is a biopic about disgraced priest Marcial Maciel who used drugs, abused boys, and fathered numerous children, who he also allegedly abused. The movie sparked controversy when released in Mexico.
