All North American rights to Charles Ferguson's 2007 Sundance Film Festival doc "No End in Sight," have been jointly acquired by Red Envelope and Magnolia Pictures, the companies officially announced Thursday. Magnolia's head Eamonn Bowles and Head of Business Affairs, Jason Janego along with Bahman Naraghi, Head of Red Envelope Entertainment negotiated the deal with John Sloss from Cinetic Media. The film will open in New York and Washington, D.C. on July 27th and expand nationwide the following week. Written and directed by Ferguson, the film, which took the Sundance best doc prize, focuses on the policy informing the decisions behind the occupation. The film "unflinchingly paints a jaw-dropping picture of wholesale incompetence, recklessness and venality." "'No End in Sight' is remarkable, a stirring, perfectly assembled catalogue of the almost unimaginable short-sightedness that passed for strategy in Iraq," commented Bowles in a statement. "This film is a must see for anyone who cares about how American government has conducted itself and where we're going as a country." [Brian Brooks]
