Palm Pictures today has picked up North American rights to Paul Taylor's documentary We Are Together, which chronicles the lives of the Agape children in South Africa who use music to overcome loss.

Palm's managing partner Jan Korbelin brokered the deal with Annie Roney, president of ro*co films international.

Palm anticipates a May 2008 theatrical release on the film, which won the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival Audience Award as well as audience awards at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival and the Amnesty International Film Festival, among others.

Taylor produced with Teddy Leifer. We Are Together is a RISE films production in association with HBO Documentary Films and The Channel 4 British Documentary Film Foundation, and is supported by Alicia Keys and her Keep A Child Alive Foundation.
