The distribution plan includes VoD, DVD and digital. Visit Film’s Ryan Kampe is handing international sales and negotiated the deal with Red Flag Releasing’s Paul Federbush.
”The Green Wave is the most personal film I have ever made,” Ahadi said. “It deals with a theme that I have followed closely over the past two years (even in my dreams) and influences my everyday life.”
