Alexander Sokurov's 'Faust' Acquired By Leisure Time Features
via Indiewire

Leisure Time Features, the independent film distributor based in New York City, has acquired all U.S. rights to "Faust" by Alexander Sokurov. Winner of the 2011 Venice International Film Festival's Golden Lion, "Faust" is a hallucinatory period piece set in the early 19th century and loosely based on Goethe's play.

"Faust" concludes Sokurov's ambitious "Men of Power" tetralogy, which included films on Hitler ("Moloch" 1999 ), Lenin ("Taurus" 2001) and Hirohito ("The Sun" 2005). The director is perhaps best known to North American audiences for his acclaimed "Russian Ark," famously shot in a single take.

Sokurov's latest film is a riff on the Faustian legend starring Johannes Zeiler in the title role as a man who sells his soul to the devil.

Leisure Time Features plans a summer 2013 release for the film.
