Check out details on Dachra’s acquistion.
Dekanalog has grabbed acclaimed Tunisian horror thriller DACHRA from writer/director Abdelhamid Bouchnak for its 2021 slate.
DACHRA, which is based on a terrifying true story and made waves at the world’s largest genre film festivals, follows a group of students who become trapped in an isolated village while trying to solve a 25-year-old murder case. The title won accolades for its stunning craftsmanship, and was awarded the coveted title of “Scariest Film” at the Overlook Film Festival. The film stars Yassmine Dimassi, Aziz Jebali, and Bilel Slatnia.
Dekanalog was founded with a focus on acquiring new titles from both virtual and conventional festival markets – with an emphasis on presenting international titles for U.S. audiences – as well as releasing restored classics from around the world.
