The Cinema Guild folks have just netted the popular Locarno comp title by Helena Wittmann. Her sophomore feature Human Flowers Of Flesh will continue working the film festival circuit (fairly certain it’ll hit Rotterdam next year) and Screen Daily reports that the film will hit theatrically in 2023.

Ida lives on a ship with her crew of five men. In Marseille her attention is caught by the secretive male world of the French Foreign Legion and she decides to follow its traces across the Mediterranean. As Ida and her crew sail via Corsica to the historical headquarters of the Legion in Algeria, boundaries and certainties blur while life at sea produces a special kind of mutual understanding.
