IFC Films has secured U.S. territory distribution rights to Marcus Vetter and Karin Steinberger’s documentary, Killing For Love, about the 1990 case of Jens Soering, who was convicted of brutally murdering his girlfriend’s parents and is serving a double life sentence in a Virginia prison. The prosecution argued this was a killing for love. The film is said to offer new insight on the trial that reveals critical facts supporting Soering’s declarations of innocence. The pic, produced by Vetter, Louise Rosen, and Ulf Meyer, will get a day-and-date release on December 15. German film funds MFG, DFFF, and broadcasters SWR, Arte, BR, DR, BBC, SVT, and VPRO financed the project. Rosen and Consulting Producer Peter Broderick negotiated the deal with IFC/Sundance Selects. Business affairs for the producers were handled by Iddo Arad of Frankfurt Kernit Klein & Selz.
