Passages: Mubi Gets Rights for Ira Sachs Indie Film (LGBTQ, Gay)

Mubi Gets Rights for Ira Sachs Indie Film ‘Passages’

The Berlin-bound gay-themed feature stars Franz Rogowski, Adèle Exarchopoulos and Ben Whishaw.

After screening at the Sundance Film Fest, the Ira Sachs film Passages has landed at MUBI in the US, UK, Ireland and Latin America.

After completing his latest project, filmmaker Tomas (Franz Rogowski) impulsively begins a heated love affair with a young schoolteacher, Agathe (Adèle Exarchopoulos).

For Tomas, the novelty of being with a woman is an exciting experience that he is eager to explore despite his marriage to Martin (Ben Whishaw).

But when Martin begins his own affair, the mercurial Tomas refocuses his attention on his husband.

Mubi is planning a 2023 theatrical release for the film in the acquired territories, followed by a release on the distributor’s streaming service.

WME Independent and SBS International brokered the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
