Yellow Veil Pictures Acquires ‘Monument’ and ‘Tower. A Bright Day’ from Polish Filmmaker Jagoda Szelc


Yellow Veil Pictures, the New-York and L.A.-based arthouse genre distribution company, has acquired U.S. distribution rights for two features from Polish director Jagoda Szelc, Bloody Disgusting can exclusively report this afternoon. We’ve also got poster art for both.

Tower. A Bright Day (2017) and Monument (2018) will both be released May 30 on Digital from Yellow Veil Pictures, with physical releases coming later this year.

Tower. A Bright Day follows a protective woman who has raised her young niece in the countryside as her own daughter. When her sister suddenly returns, it triggers a sense that she may be back to reclaim her offspring or to implement even more ominous plans.

The film premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival and Gdynia Film Festival, where it won best feature film and best screenplay.

Monument follows a group of hotel interns who wake up in an ice-cold van. They don’t know each other yet, and have just arrived to do their internships. The strict manager of the hotel numbers the students: real names are not relevant, there is no place for individuality here.

As they work through green-lit corridors and empty rooms, things become increasingly eerie. What exactly is going on here?

The deal was negotiated by Hugues Barbier, Justin Timms, and Joe Yanick for Yellow Veil Pictures and Marcin Malatynski of Lodz Film School & Justyna Koronkiewicz of Media Move on behalf of the filmmakers.
