Head of international distribution Sonia Mehandjiyska has licensed rights to 4 Digital Media for the UK, Anchor Bay for Australia/New Zealand and Daro for South Africa. 

Mehandjiyska will continue sales in Cannes next month.

Vertical Entertainment handles the current US release of Boys Of Abu Ghraib, Luke Moran’s feature directorial debut about a friendship between a US solider and an Iraqi detainee at the notorious prison.
