The distributor has acquired worldwide rights from Submarine to Werner Herzog’s Sundance premiere Lo And Behold: Reveries Of The Connected World and will commence international sales at the EFM in Berlin next month.

Lo And Behold Reveries Of The Connected World

Magnolia is understood to have beaten several worldwide SVOD offers and a handful of bids by traditional North American buyers.

Herzog’s documentary debuted in the Premieres section and touches on quirky, scary and provocative aspects of the internet age. Magnolia is targeting a 2016 theatrical release.

“My dream at Sundance to take off from the Olympic ramp on skis remains unfulfilled, but I am even more exhilarated by the fact that my film now is taking flight through Magnolia,” said Herzog in a statement.

NetScout presents Lo And Behold: Reveries Of The Connected World in association with Saville Productions, Pereira & O’Dell Entertainment and Skellig Rock.

Rupert Maconick and Herzog produced and the executive producer roster features Jim McNiel of NetScout, Dave Arnold, Tennille Teague, and David Moore.
