According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Independent Pictures has acquired North American and U.K. rights to Paradise Now, the controversial drama from Palestinian filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad that tracks the final 48 hours in the lives of two Palestinian suicide bombers.

The film, co-written by Abu-Assad and co-producer Bero Beyer of Augustus Film, bowed last week at the Berlin International Film Festival amid protesters who objected to the humanization of Palestinian suicide bombers. The film went on to win the AGICOA's Blue Angel Award for the best European film, the Amnesty International Film Prize and the Berliner Morgenpost Readers' Prize.
