Sundance's "Knuckle" Snagged for International Rights

ContentFilm has picked up international rights (excluding U.K.) to Sundance World Cinema Documentary competition film, “Knuckle,” directed by Ian Palmer. CAA is retaining North American rights.

An epic 12-year journey into in the world of an Irish traveler community, “Knuckle” is an inside look at their “secretive and exhilarating bare-knuckle fighting rituals.” Chronicling a history of violent feuding between rival families, the film follows James Quinn McDonagh and his younger brother Michael, as they fight for their reputations and the honor of their family name.

Commented producer Teddy Leifer (Producer Sundance 2009 Grand Jury Prize Winner “Rough Aunties”), “We are very much looking forward to working with Content. Their experience and passion will drive ‘Knuckle’ to find the audiences it deserves.”
