Congratulations UK readers! 

UK distributor New Wave Films has picked up rights to Mahamat-Saleh Haroun's 2013 Cannes Competition entry Grigris.

The film, which received mixed reviews after its Cannes premiere, centers on Grisgris, a 25 year old young man with dreams of becoming a dancer despite the fact that he's paralyzed from the waist down. His dreams are shattered when his uncle falls seriously ill. To save him, he decides to go work for petrol traffickers.

It stars Soulémane DéméMariam MonoryCyril GueiAnaïs Monory and Marius Yelolo (who's worked with Haroun on at least 2 other past films).

Grisgris is produced by Florence Stern for Pili Films, with Chad's Goï Goï Productions and Frances 3 Cinéma.

Still no USA distributor pickup yet, although, in addition to this UK acquisition, the film already has a France theatrical release date set for August 28, 2013.
