Screen can exclusively reveal the first trailer for feature documentary John McEnroe: In The Realm Of Perfection, which UK-based sales outfit Film Constellation has boarded ahead of the European Film Market in Berlin.
Narrated by French actor Mathieu Amalric, the feature uses unseen 16mm footage uncovered from the film archives of French major tournament Roland Garros to tell the story of the famously explosive McEnroe’s quest for perfection in his sport.
Julien Faraut directed the film, which has its premiere in Berlin Film Festival’s Forum strand on Friday, Feb 16. Producers are William Jehannin and Raphaelle Delauche.
Film Constellation’s EFM slate also features espionage thriller Spider In The Web, starring Ben Kingsley and Monica Bellucci.
