Evolutionary Films have closed an all rights deal with Rialto Distribution for the Australia - New Zealand release of LET ME GO

London based production and sales outfit Evolutionary Films are excited to announce that they have closed an all rights deal with Rialto Distribution for the Australia and New Zealand theatrical release of LET ME GO, a powerful and deeply moving drama starring four time BAFTA nominated actress Juliet Stevenson CBE (Bend it Like Beckham, Truly Madly Deeply), Jodhi May (Last of the Mohicans, The Other Boleyn Girl), Lucy Boynton (Sing Street, Life in Squares), Karin Bertling (The Bridge, Wallander) and Stanley Weber (The First Day of the Rest of Your Life, Not Another Happy Ending).


LET ME GO, which is based on the true story recounted in the best-selling memoirs by Helga Schneider and is from the award-winning director Polly Steele, will be released theatrically across Australasia in 2017. Evolutionary are already also considering offers from several other territories as they search for the best possible partners to handle this intelligent and emotional drama which is already proving extremely popular at it’s first market this AFM.


Helga was abandoned by her mother in 1941 when she was only four years old. Helga’s mother had gone to join the Nazi SS where she underwent special training to qualify as a concentration-camp guard in Auschwitz. LET ME GO is set in the year 2000, following not only Helga and her mother’s journeys but the next two generations of their family and the suffering they endure following revelations of long held secrets around the horrific events that took place over 70 years ago.


“It’s not only my personal story. It’s an authentic, direct, witnessing of the psychological, social and emotional tragedies suffered by all the children of war criminals,” said Helga Schneider whose life story the film depicts.


LET ME GO is a film about mothers and daughters, about trans-generational family relationships, about ghosts from the past and the impact they leave on the present. It is a film about letting go of your past wounds and acknowledging how many generations it takes before the scars of trauma start to heal.


LET ME GO features the first original film score from Radiohead’s Philip Selway.


"Let Me Go is a highly emotionally charged and extremely polished thought provoking drama that deserves theatrical exhibition and the attention of the major festivals. We’re very excited to have closed with Rialto Distribution who are a perfect partner to bring this title to the big screen in Australia and New Zealand,” said Evolutionary Films EVP Sales & Acquisitions, Ildi Toth Davy.



Rialto Distribution specializes in theatrical film distribution and home entertainment. As a market leading independent film company, Rialto holds the rights to an extensive catalogue of award winning feature films and audience favourites. The company’s team is dedicated to acquiring, and successfully distributing the work of respected filmmakers in Australasia and bringing quality independent, arthouse, foreign language and documentary titles to discerning audiences.
