The Weinstein Co. and IFC will co-distribute Rachid Bouchareb's French World War II drama, Indigenes (Days of Glory) from Tessalit Productions.

The French and Arab-language film, which won the Francois Chalais Award and its male ensemble cast the best actor award at the Cannes Film Festival, follows four men (Jamel Debbouze, Samy Naceri, Sami Bouajila and Roschdy Zem) who enlist in the French army along with 130,000 other North African, or 'indigenous' soldiers. The Hollywood Reporter adds they fight the Nazis to liberate France, a country they've never seen, as they also fight French discrimination.

Indigenes will debut in North America at the Toronto International Film Festival and is tentatively scheduled for release by the end of the year.
