The film, which stars Del Toro and Mathieu Amalric, premiered at Cannes and was just screened at the New York Film Festival.

Desplechin, Kent Jones and Julie Peyr adapted the script from the George Devereux book Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian.

The series is about the author’s relationship and multidisciplinary study of Jimmy Picard, a Blackfoot Indian, who fought in World War II and suffered from psychological distress.

IFC is expected to release the film in early 2014.
