An experiment in film distribution which aims to offer viewers independent European films on all screens, anytime. Streams Day & Date : The Choice is Yours 4th Release PRESS RELEASE – Paris, 15th October 2014 After the multi-platform release of Under the Rainbow (Au bout du conte) in Spain, Ireland, the UK and Bulgaria, the Streams Day & Date project continues its European tour, with the release of its second title. From October 24th 2014, Mariana Otero's documentary Like an Open Sky (À ciel ouvert) will be released Day-and-Date on Spanish screens, in theatres and on VoD on the Filmin and iTunes platforms. The film’s DVD, published by Cameo, will be available on December 3rd. Like an Open Sky’s wave of Day-and-Date releases across Europe will start with two premieres, in Barcelona at the Cinema Boliche on October 16th, and in Madrid at the Cinema Artistic Metropol on October 17th, before a wider release in the Spanish theatres. The film’s director Mariana Otero will attend the two evenings and take part in Q&A sessions after the screenings in order to meet and interact with the audience and the press on the film. Along the same lines as her previous awarded documentaries, filmmaker Mariana Otero has trained her astute gaze on a unique special education establishment: Le Courtil (Belgium). Focusing on the children and the therapists, ‘Like an Open Sky’ is a powerful and captivating documentary but also a thought-provoking artwork. By filming children with mental and social problems and adults trying to understand the enigma that they represent on a case by case basis, Mariana Otero presents and questions a singular use of psychoanalysis. Her exchange with the audience during the Premieres, in collaboration with the Spanish New Lacanian School of Psychoanalysis, will thus provide complementary insights on a fascinating and complex topic. Streams Day & Date is a project coordinated by the EuroVoD network. It is part of the Preparatory Action ‘Circulation of European Films in the Digital Era’, launched by the European Commission. Including all players involved in the cinema industry, it aims at putting innovation in film distribution by releasing films simultaneously or quasisimultaneously in cinema theatres, on DVD and on Video-on-Demand, in order to fully integrate Internet in the economics of film and build new, win-win models for digital multi-screen exploitation. Four European titles, of various genres and nationalities, will thus be released throughout 2014 and 2015 in Spain, UK, Ireland, Belgium and Bulgaria.
