The Demon Finds a Home in The Orchard



Distribution label The Orchard announced today that the company has acquired North American distribution rights to Demon (review), from the late Polish director Marcin Wrona. Following a premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, it’s headed our way next year. Read on!

From the Press Release:
Demon, which The Orchard will release in 2016, had its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival (Vanguard Section). It was directed, produced, and co-written by Marcin Wrona with Pawel Maslona co-writing and Olga Szymanska serving as executive producer.

In Demon, a young man travels to the hometown of his future wife where he knows no one. As a wedding gift from the bride’s grandfather, he receives a piece of land where the two can build a house and raise a happy family. While preparing the land to build, he finds human bones buried beneath the new property. Strange things begin to happen to change this happy couple’s life forever. Demon is a modern take on one of the most famous figures of Jewish folklore, the dybbuk, a spirit of a person not properly laid to rest that seeks to inhabit the body of a living person.

“I am thrilled to be working with an exciting and innovative company like The Orchard to bring our film to US audiences,” said Szymanska. “I know Marcin would have been so pleased to find a company as passionate and enthusiastic about this film as he was.”

“Demon is its own unique monster of sorts – moody and creepy, yet with an underlying satirical side that resonated with us,” said Paul Davidson, The Orchard’s SVP, Film and TV. “Marcin delivered a wonderfully original film, and we hope to honor his memory with its release.”
