My Brother The Devil

We're about 2 weeks late with this piece of news...

It was announced that digital distribution company GoDigital signed a deal 108 Media that will see GoDigital distribute 8 films from 108 Media.

108 Media already has an agreement with Mark Urman’s Paladin Distribution to release each film theatrically in the USA; so all 8 will get traditional theatrical distribution, as well as VOD and digital.

Included in the 8 are Michel Gondry's Bronx tale The We and The I (which we already told you about).

However, we definitely haven't covered the Sundance Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival prize-winning British/Egyptian drama My Brother The Devil.

Written and directed by Egyptian-Welsh screenwriter and director Sally El Hosaini (her feature film debut) the film stars James Floyd, Fady Elsayed and Saïd Taghmaoui. It tells the story of two sons of Egyptian immigrants coming of age on the streets of gangland, East London.

Rounding out the cast are familiar names of black British talents you might recognize, like Ashley Bashy Thomas, and Letitia Wright.

Reviews have very been strong across the board, and the film has picked up numerous awards on the film festival circuit, where it's been for much the year. 

It was released in the UK on November 9th, and will be coming to US theaters some time in 2013, and other territories globally, later on.
