‘From the Wild Sea’

Copenhagen-based DR Sales has sealed fresh deals for Berlinale-selected documentary From The Wild Sea.

The film has sold to Japan (NHK), Australia and New Zealand (Madman), Sweden (Smogasbord Picturehouse), and Taiwan (Fubon Cultural and Education Foundation).

Robin Petré’s debut feature documentary was first seen in March at the online, industry-only Berlinale in the Generation 14plus strand. It will screen at the physical edition of the festival’s Summer Special, which takes place from June 9-20. It is also one of 16 nominees for the Berlinale Documentary Award, handpicked by artistic director Carlo Chatrian.

The film looks at the troubled co-existence between humans and nature by following marine rescue groups in the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands.

Malene Flindt Pedersen produces for Denmark’s Hansen and Pedersen with support from the Danish Film Institute’s New Danish Screen.

In addition to the Berlinale, the film has also been selected for CPH:DOX, True/False Film Fest, Thessaloniki, Sheffield Doc/Fest and Biografilm Festival.
