Luminosity Entertainment will kick off world sales in Cannes on Assaf Ben Shetrit’s documentary Prophets Of Change examining the lives of musicians and activists from both sides of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and featuring all all-star roster of narrators.
President Daniel Diamond announced the acquisition on Tuesday (May 10) and said, “Assaf has crafted an enormously inspiring film about extraordinary human beings who find a way to break a cycle of decades of distrust and fear to create unlikely friendships and extraordinary music. This is exactly the movie the world needs right now.”
Prophets Of Change was produced over six years and is narrated by J.K. Simmons, Forest Whitaker, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Leymah Gbowee, Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, Sarah Silverman and Billy Zane.
Ben Shetrit, who served as producer with David Sarfati, said the feature documentary had been an “incredible journey”.
Luminosity was co-founded by industry veterans Elie Samaha, Diamond, Geno Taylor and Missy Valdez. Its most recent film Back On The Strip starring Wesley Snipes and Tiffany Haddish is scheduled for wide theatrical release later this year.
