Walk This Way is declaring war this autumn, with a new collection of films themed around conflict set in Cambodia, Paris and Madrid.
The digital distribution scheme, which is supported by the European Commission, gathers together and promotes films for straight-to-VOD release in the European Union. Each film is available in multiple countries on VOD platforms including iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant Video, Sony and Xbox.
After its third collection, Comedies à la Carte, Walk This Way takes a turn for the gritty, with a collection of spectacular and intense war films, simply titled This Is War.
Here’s the rundown of what’s new:
Academy Award winner Régis Wargnier directs this true story, exploring the genocide perpetrated by the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. Two decades after forging an unlikely alliance in Pol Pot’s Cambodia, a French ethnologist and a former Khmer Rouge official meet again, when the latter is arrested for crimes against humanity. The drama was co-produced by Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh, and stars French actor Raphaël Personnaz and multi-award-winning Belgian actor Olivier Gourmet. The film is now available to stream in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

My German Friend
This German film set in Argentina tells a love story between Sulamit (Celeste Cid), the daughter of German-Jewish refugees, and Friedrich (Max Riemelt), the son of German-Nazis refugees. As children, the pair are close friends, and grow up between the fall of Peron’s Government in 1955 and the years of prison, torture and death in Argentina between 1976 and 1984. German filmmaker Jeanine Meerapfel, whose previous films received awards at Berlin, Cannes and San Sebastián, brings us a coming-of-age story and a lesson in Argentinian history rolled into one. The film is now available to stream in Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

The Sleeping Voice
Hortensia (Inma Cuesta) and Pepita (María León) are involved with an underground guerrilla movement in Madrid after the Spanish Civil War. But Hortensia is captured and forced to deliver her baby in jail, leaving Pepita to try and find a way to help her and the guerrillas. Goya Award-winning filmmaker Benito Zambrano’s movie is a heart-breaking story about love, loss and courage, with León’s performance winning the Silver Seashell for Best Actress at the 2012 San Sebastián Film Festival. The film is now available to stream in Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
