Gravitas Ventures has acquired U.S. rights to The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches, the latest film from Canadian writer-director Simon Lavoie that bowed at this year’s Toronto Film Festival. Adapted from Gaétan Soucy’s novel, the pic centers on two siblings raised alone by their authoritarian father in a state of religious conservativism — they don’t have names and grow up largely ignorant of the world outside their father’s estate. One morning, they find him dead – hanging from a rafter – and must confront their surroundings in order to unravel the mystery of their strange existence. Seville International holds international rights to the film produced by Marcel Giroux under his GPA Films banner. Seville’s Anick Poirier struck the deal with Gravitas’ Josh Spector. Also at AFM today, Gravitas picked up VOD rights to Fishbowl California, a comedy-drama from Michael A. MacRae.
