Kino Lorber acquires Keep Quiet
New York-headquartered distribution house Kino Lorber has acquired all North American rights to Joseph Martin and Sam Blair’s portrait of Hungarian politician Csanad Szegedi.
Keep Quiet (pictured), which held its world premiere at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, chronicles the life of Szegedi, who helped found the far-right, anti-Semitic nationalist party Jobbik, only to subsequently discover his own Jewish heritage.
The film follows Szegedi as he approaches Rabbi Baruch Oberlander, the leader of the Orthodox Jewish community in Budapest, as they embark upon a three-year voyage of discovery to confront Szegedi’s dark past and reflect on his new future.
The deal was negotiated between Kino Lorber’s senior VP of theatrical Wendy Lidell and The Film Sales Company’s president Andrew Herwitz.
The film opens at New York’s Lincoln Plaza Cinemas on Feb. 10, followed by a national expansion.
