The fact that The Searchers already has a fruitful and close collaboration with A24 is evident in cinema releases such as Everything everywhere all at once, the farewell And Go on! Come on. This collaboration is now expanded with the addition of four high-profile A24 film titles: Past Lives, Dream Scenario, The Iron Claw And love is bleeding. The Searchers looks forward to bringing these titles to the general public later this year and early 2024. With the collaboration with A24, The Searchers will also play a leading role in strengthening and promoting the “A24 label” in the Benelux.

Past lives was the big revelation of the Berlin Film Festival and Sundance earlier this year and also a success story for Korean-Canadian director Céline Song. Past lives follows the relationship between Nora and Hae Sung, two close childhood friends who become separated when Nora’s family emigrates from South Korea to Canada. Two decades later, they find themselves in New York where they confront (sometimes without knowing it), the love and the life choices they have made. Past lives is a heartbreaking contemporary romantic film that will leave no one indifferent.
