IFC Films has acquired U.S. distrib rights to Cristian Mungiu‘s Tales From The Golden Age, an omnibus film which wil show in Cannes this week in the Un Certain Regard section. Pic is “a collection of Romanian urban legends from the communist era,” written by Mungiu and co-directed by Ioana Uricaru, Hanno Hofer, Razvan Marculescu, Constantin Popescu and Mungiu. IFC previously distributed Mungiu’s 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, which won the Palmes d’Or only to be shat upon the Academy’s foreign-language film committee when they declined to shortlist it. Golden Age won’t see the light of a U.S. projector lamp until 2010.
