Dunham plays Ruth, an American music journalist who joins her her father, Edek (Fry), a charmingly stubborn Holocaust survivor, on a journey to his homeland. While Ruth is eager to make sense of her family’s past, Edek embarks on the trip with his own agenda.
Treasure is based on the bestselling autobiographical novel Too Many Men by Lily Brett. Von Heinz also co-wrote the film with frequent collaborator John Quester.
This is the third and final addition to von Heinz’s “Aftermath Trilogy,” following 2013’s Hanna’s Journey, and 2020 German International Feature Oscar submission And Tomorrow the Entire World.
Bleecker Street and FilmNation are partnering on the worldwide release of Treasure, after previously having collaborated on the U.S. releases of Waitress: The Musical starring Sara Bareilles, and Disobedience starring Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams.
FilmNation is also repping Berlin Film Festival opener, Small Things Like These, starring (and produced by) Oppenheimer Oscar nominee Cillian Murphy.
Also in Berlin, Bleecker Street will present David and Nathan Zellner’s Sasquatch Sunset, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Riley Keough, in the Berlinale Special section of the festival following its world premiere in Sundance last month.
