Super Ltd has acquired North American rights to Gianfranco Rosi’s documentary Notturno that flies the flag for Italy in the international feature film Oscar race.
The boutique division and incubator from Neon picked up rights from Submarine.
Notturno premiered at Venice Film Festival and was selected by Telluride, Toronto, and New York film festivals. It won three awards in Venice including the Cinema for UNICEF award.
Rosi’s follow-up to 2017 Oscar nominee Fire At Sea is nominated for a Critics’ Choice Documentary Award and chronicles the daily lives of people trapped in war-torn regions across the Middle East.
Notturno is produced by Stemal Entertainment and 21uno Film and Rai Cinema, with Istituto Luce – Cinecittà, with the contribution of DG Cinema e Audiovosivo MIBACT, and the support of Eurimages in coproduction with Les Films d’Ici with Arte France Cinéma, and with No Nation Films and Mizzi Stock Entertainment in association with Doha Film Institute, with the support of Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg.
Mason Speta negotiated the deal for Super Ltd with Submarine Entertainment on behalf of the filmmakers. The Match Factory handles international rights.
Super Ltd also handled Honeyland, which became the first non-fiction film to earn Oscar nominations for both documentary and international feature film categories during last awards season.
