Sundance Selects announced today that it was snapping up the North American rights to "Beyond the Hills," Romanian director Cristian Mungiu's third film.  Set in Romania, the film follows a young woman who returns to her home country after living in Germany and reunites with a friend she has known for years since their childhood in the same orphanage.  She has found a family in the nuns and priests of a rural convent, and refuses to return with her to Germany.

Mungiu's first film, "Occident," was featured at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival.  His sophomore outing, "4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days," won the 2007 Cannes Palme d'Or, making him the first Romanian filmmaker to win Cannes's top honor.
