IFC Midnight acquired US rights to the Marvin Kren-directed The Station. Scripted by Bennjamin Hessler, the film stars Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Hille Beseler and Peter Knaack. Deal comes after the pic premiered in the Midnight Madness section of Toronto. Helmut Grasser produced. Pic follows three scientists and a technician in the German Alps as they monitor and study the climate and the ramifications of rapid weather changes on our world. They discover that a rapidly retreating glacier has begun to leak a strange red liquid that seems to be affecting local wildlife at a genetic level. Soon it will be up to a reclusive technician to defend the group from the biological monstrosities growing just beyond the walls of their tiny outpost.
