Visit Films has acquired international sales rights to Ole Schell and Sara Ziff’s documentary Picture Me and will commence sales at Toronto.
The film premiered at the 2009 Genart Film Festival Film Festival and was named best documentary at the Milan International Film Festival.
Over the course of several years Schell follows Ziff, charting her rise from fresh-faced ingenue to supermodel.
The film intersperses behind-the-scenes footage with appearances by Gilles Bensimon, Karl Lagerfeld, Nicole Miller and other fashion icons.
“The access to this high-profile world in a behind the scenes manner exposes the reality of the fashion industry in a way that no crafted or manipulated piece of reality television can,” Visit’s Ryan Kampe said. “Picture Me will become a major talking piece for anyone interested in fashion and should find theatrical outlets around the world, something so few docs can do these days.”
Visit’s current projects include Cannes titles Carcasses, Here and Manila, as well as Sundance premieres The Missing Person, Kimjongilia,You Won’t Miss Me and The Immaculate Conception Of Little Dizzle.
