Cannes: Film Movement Takes N. American Rights to ‘Stations of the Cross’ (EXCLUSIVE) New York-based distributor Film Movement has acquired North American rights on Dietrich Brueggemann’s “Stations of the Cross,” a highly-stylized religious drama that won critical plaudits and a Silver Bear for Best Screenplay at 2014’s Berlin Festival. Sold by Beta Cinema, it also won fest’s Ecumenical Jury’s best competition film award. Told in 14 scenes echoing Christ’s journey to crucifixion, all but three made up of single fixed shot, “Stations” narrates the journey of pious 14-year-old Maria, who belongs to a fundamentalist family as, torn between devotion to her family, radical faith and adolesecence, she makes ever larger sacrifices in an effort to cure her younger autistic brother she adores. Brueggemann (“Nine Scenes”) wrote the screenplay with his sister Anna. . . . Variety, May 15
