Film Sales Company president Andrew Herwitz has lined up his initial Sundance slate, with a roster that includes worldwide rights to Zeina Durra’s The Imperialists Are Still Alive!
Elodie Bouchez stars in the Dramatic Competition entry about a group of US immigrants who navigate their way through the downtown New York art scene.
Herwitz has picked up sales rights to Tanya Hamilton’s Dramatic Competition film Night Catches Us starring Anthony Mackie as pivotal former figure in the Black Panther movement who returns to his neighbourhood to settle the past. Kerry Washington also stars.
The company will be offering English-speaking rights to Mariano Cohn and Gaston Duprat’s Argentine feature The Man Next Door. The film plays in the World Cinema Dramatic section and follows an upper-middle class architect whose perfect existence is disturbed when his neighbour begins a seemingly innocuous redesign on his house.
World Documentary Category entry His & Hers depicts a woman’s life by piecing together footage from the lives of 76 characters. The Films Sales Company represents worldwide rights excluding Ireland.
