Nancy Buirski directed Afternoon Of A Faun: Tanaquil le Clercq (pictured), a documentary about the celebrated US ballet star Tanaquil Le Clercq. American Masters (PBS) controls US broadcast rights.
Le Clercq was renowned as the most iconic dancer of her time before she was paralysed by polio at the age of 27.
The documentary screened at the 51st New York Film Festival and will launch in New York on February 5 2014. Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber brokered the deal with RJ Millard of Obscured Pictures and Krysanne Katsoolis of Cactus Three on behalf of the film-makers.
Larry Brand’s Girl On The Train stars Henry Ian Cusick, Nicki Aycox and Stephen Lang in the story of a documentary maker’s unexpectedly mysterious journey.
Monterey plans a 2014 theatrical release.
