Dogwoof has boarded international rights for Madeleine Sackler’s Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus.
The film has its world premiere in Toronto on Sept 9. HBO has acquired US TV rights.
Dogwoof Global, who brokered the deal with executive producer Andrea Meditch, will represent the film across all foreign platforms and territories.
“We are thrilled to be working with the wonderful team at Dogwoof on international sales for Dangerous Acts. Making the film required acts of heroism from not only the theatre members, but also an international crew, so we are excited to share their story around the world,” said director Madeleine Sackler.
The film looks at the acclaimed Belarus Free Theatre, which attempts to stage though-provoking theatre in one of the world’s most repressive regimes.
“This is a terrific portrait of Belarus Free Theatre and their struggle against the last dictatorship of Europe. The footage that was smuggled out of the country is extraordinary,” added Vesna Cudic of Dogwoof Global.
Sackler’s past films include The Lottery.
