PHILADELPHIA — Artsploitation Films has announced the acquisition of the Serbian film "Clip," directed by Maja Milos for the U.S.
founded earlier this year by TLA Entertainment Inc. president Raymond Murray,
Artsploitation Films said "Clip" is bound to be the company’s most controversial release, which was banned in Russia.
The film is described as a sexually graphic study of a teenage girl in a grim Belgrade suburb and is about to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Following its Toronto festival screening, "Clip" will play at other festivals in the U.S. (including Chicago International Film Festival and AFI Fest) prior to its theatrical release from Artsploitation in early 2013, to be followed by a DVD and Blu-ray release.
The film was acquired from Wide Films, whose head of international sales Clementine Hugot said, “Clip is a real piece of cinema vérité, sensual and controversial! We are sincerely happy that Artsploitation is daringly releasing the film, knowing that they would manage to link the commercial aspect with the social issue, both portrayed in the Tiger Award-winning film. Artsploitation is the perfect company to show a new talent in its domestic market.”
