Javier Bardem, Alvaro Longoria and Lilly Hartley produced and Longoria directed the documentary, set to screen in Toronto on Sept 13.

The digital release of Sons Of The Clouds: The Last Colony will coincide with a multi-territory launch through iTunes and a screening at the IFC Center in New York in mid-October ahead of a series of nationwide theatrical screenings.

The film from Pinguin Films, Morena Films and Candescent Films focuses on an unresolved conflict in northern Africa where the de-colonisation of the Western Sahara has reportedly turned close to 200,000 Sahrawi people into refugees.

WME Global represented the filmmakers in negotiations with GoDigital.
