South African distributor Ten10 Films picks up Rupert Murray’s Sundance and BIFA nominated documentary The End Of The Line.
Independent distributors Tendeka Matatu and Rachel Young of Ten10 Films will release the documentary based on Charles Clover’s book about sustainable fishing from Oct 22.
George Duffield, producer of End Of The Line, told Screen:
“We secured corporate sponsorship for the film from Investec Asset Management, which allowed us to grant the rights to Ten10Films in South Africa to pursue a limited theatrical release pattern. It is not easy getting a film about fish released anywhere, and without the kind of support Investec brought to the table, the film would not be reaching African audiences, which it absolutely needs to do, since half the world’s overfishing problem is in Africa.”
