‘Piano Dreams’

Gary Lennon’s documentary Piano Dreams has been acquired by Vendetta Films for Australia/New Zealand from London-based MetFilm Sales.

The film follows three young prodigies and their families exploring the popular and competitive world of piano playing in China.

International broadcasters are also tuning in with France, Germany (NDR Arte), Norway (NRK), Sweden (SVT) and the Netherlands (NTR) on board.

Producers are Lennon and Raymon McCormack for Ireland’s Gambit Picture, with Germany’s 3B-Produktion. Screen Ireland is backing the project.

MetFilm Sales is also in Cannes with Exposing Muybridge, a documentary about pioneering photographer Eadweard Muybridge, and Karl Malakunas’ Philippines-set doc thriller Delikado, in which environmental crusaders fight to save an island paradise.

No replacement has yet been announced for MetFilms’ head of sales Vesna Cudic who is leaving to join Sky.
