Dogwoof boards Dior and I
Company also acquires UK rights to Concerning Violence.
Dogwoof will handle international sales, outside of North America, for Dior and I [pictured].
Frédéric Tcheng’s documentary premiered at this year’s Tribeca and is a behind-the-scenes look at the historic French fashion house.
The deal was brokered by Anna Godas, CEO of Dogwoof, with David Koh and Josh Braun of Submarine. It will also see Dogwoof distribute the film across all platforms in the UK.
Koh and Braun commented: “We are excited to work with our dear friends at Dogwoof on another exemplary film and on another successful collaboration. The film-makers are in great hands and we are excited to share this special film around the world.”
Dior and I is making its market premiere at this year’s Cannes.
Meanwhile, Dogwoof has acquired UK rights to Concerning Violence in an all-rights deal.
Göran Hugo Olsson’s study of the African liberation struggles of the 1960s and 1970s is narrated by Lauryn Hill, and is based on Frantz Fanon’s influential text The Wretched of the Earth.
The deal was brokered by Oli Harbottle, head of distribution for Dogwoof, with Jean-Christophe Simon of Films Boutique.
It is scheduled for a late autumn theatrical release.
“Concerning Violence is a completely unique piece of film-making,” commented Harbottle. “We are confident the film will continue to have a long shelf-life far beyond our autumn scheduled release, and will provoke and inspire in equal measure.”
