Salad Morissette sells option rights to 25 Wim Wenders films

German director Wim Wenders, whose latest international Oscar nominee, „Perfect Days,” has signed a deal with sales agent Salade Morissette to handle theatrical, festival and non-commercial distribution rights for his 25-film slate.

The contract with the director's foundation, Wim Wenders Stiftung, included 17 feature films, four feature documentaries and seven shorts, including „Kings of the Road” (1976), „The American Friend” (1977), „Paris, Texas” (1984), „Wings Of Desire” (1987) and “Buena Vista Social Club” (1999).

Hanway Films will continue to handle the theatrical rights in previously sold territories.

Salaud Morisset, led by François Morisset, will work with the director's foundation to „ensure continued relevance and protection. [his] body of work while reaching a global audience,” the company said. „The company plans to approach each region with a specific strategy, actively working on special screening series and retrospectives.”

Claire Brunel, Managing Director of the Wim Wenders Stiftung, commented: „I am confident that François and his team will be able to create innovative paths to discover new audiences in the Wim Wenders catalog. Sustaining and future-proofing the art of cinema and the work of Wim Wenders are the main goals of the foundation. Repeat the magic of big-screen cinema.” We want to be open to discovering and reinventing, exploring new exhibition methods and formats.

Morissette said: “I look forward to working with Wim Wenders gems to guarantee continued viewing of this cinematic treasure, particularly in territories with challenging distribution landscapes and cinema infrastructures. In this time of industry-wide change, Wim Wenders' images serve as symbols of reassurance across generations. We look forward to supporting their discovery by many more generations of film lovers around the world.
