Katrine Boorman’s documentary about her famous film-maker father John Boorman will screen in Cannes Classics.
Carey Fitzgerald’s High Point Media Group has taken sales rights to Cannes Classics selection Me And Me Dad, a portrait of legendary film maker John Boorman, directed by his daughter Katrine Boorman.
Actress turned director Boorman spent four years filming her father, whose directing credits include Hell in the Pacific, Point Blank, Deliverance and The Emerald Forest.
Me and me Dad is Boorman’s directorial debut and is produced by Mel Agace and Danny Moynihan. Rose Garnett, who worked on films including Nowhere Boy and Black Swan, executive produced alongside Christopher Simon and Felix Vossen of Embargo Films.
“We fell in love with Katrine’s warm and touching film the moment we saw it,” said High Point’s Fitzgerald. “The uniquely personal and disarming approach she takes to her subject brings out a dimension that a more conventional or academic portrait would lack. We are delighted to be working with Katrine, Mel and Danny towards making this distinctive film a success.”
