Paris-based MPM Premium has boarded sales on Nicolas Peduzzi’s documentary Ghost Song, which opened Cannes’ ACID section.
Filmed in Houston, Texas, as the city prepares for the imminent arrival of a hurricane, the work follows three separate characters, including a rapper OMBBloodbath, who was a mentee and friend of George Floyd.
It is Peduzzi’s second feature documentary after Southern Belle, about a troubled Texas heiress, which won the grand prize in the French competition at FIDMarseille 2017.
MPM head of sales Quentin Worthington is reporting strong interest from autumn festivals for Ghost Song. It is produced Carine Ruszniewski at Paris-based GoGoGo Films. Other Cannes titles on the MPM slate include Directors’ Fortnight selection Europa.
