YOU DISAPPEAR picked up for North American distribution

The Danish film You Disappear[+] has had its North American rights sold to Gravitas Ventures.

Based on Christian Jungersen’s novel, You Disappear follows Frederik (Nikolaj Lie Kaas [+]), a headmaster put on trial for embezzling millions from his school. His defence lawyer (the late Michael Nyqvist [+]) argues that Frederik is not criminally liable because he has a brain tumour that is affecting his behaviour. Also staring in the Danish film is Trine Dyrholm [+].

You Disappear is produced by Zentropa [+] with TrustNordisk representing the film. It is also currently Denmark’s selection for the foreign-language Oscar race.

Gravitas plans on releasing You Disappear in North America in spring 2018. At the moment, it is screening for Academy Members in L.A. through November and December.
