Zurich-based Ascot Elite has bought Swiss rights to Doris Doerrie's documentary How To Cook Your Life from Atrix Films.

The film, which had its world premiere in the Berlinale Special section at the Berlin Film Festival last month, follows Doerrie as she engages Zen Master Edward Espe Brown to explain the guiding principles of Zen Buddhism as they apply to the preparation of food as well as to life itself.

Ascot Elite also handled New Age documentary What The Bleep Do We Know. Other Bleep distributors such as Roadside Attractions in North America and MFA+ in Germany have also acquired How To Cook Your Life.

MFA is releasing the film theatrically in Germany on May 10 on 60 prints.
