New York-based distributor Kino Lorber has acquired North American rights to Berlin’s critic’s prize-winning ob-doc The Great Museum (pictured).

Johannes Holzhausen’s behind-the-scenes glimpse at Vienna’s pre-eminent Kunsthistorisches Museum picked up the Caligari Prize – also known as the critic’s prize – at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, and will be released this fall by Kino Lorber.

“To be invited to share the inner life of such a monumental, world-renowned institution makes viewing The Great Museum a truly thrilling and utterly absorbing experience,” said Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber in a statement.

The acquisition was negotiated between Lorber and Wide House’s Anais Clanet.
