Already proving to be one of the most active buyers at MIFED, Italian arthouse distributor Bim has snapped up Italian distribution rights to three new pictures: Michael Moore's widely anticipated Fahrenheit 9:11, Jonathan Demme's The Agronomist and John Curran's We Don't Live Here Anymore.
Sold by Wild Bunch, Fahrenheit 9:11 is currently in production and explores the links between US president George Bush and the family of Osama Bin Laden.
Bim has also acquired from Wild Bunch The Agronomist, Jonathan Demme's film about broadcaster and human rights activist Jean Dominique and his crusade for freedom and democracy in Haiti.
Bim, one of Italy's most active buyers, has also bolstered its distribution slate with We Don't Live Here Anymore. Sold by Renaissance Films, the drama is based on short stories by Andre Dubus, who also wrote the story which was then adapted into 2001's In The Bedroom.
We Don't Live Here Anymore is currently in post-production, and stars Naomi Watts, Mark Ruffalo (In the Cut) and Laura Dern.
