TF1 International Takes non-English Territory Rights to Sundance doc "God Grew Tired of Us"

By Indiewire | Indiewire January 23, 2006 at 8:28AM

TF1 International announced today the acquisition of international rights excluding English-speaking territories to Christopher Quinn's "God Grew Tired of Us," which has its world premiere on Sunday, January 22 at the Sundance Film Festival where it is part of the documentary competition. The film is produced by Quinn and Molly Bradford and narrated by Nicole Kidman. "God Grew Tired of Us" follows three "lost boys of Sudan" over four years as they leave Africa for New York City and attempt to make sense of their new country. After the initial culture shock, they begin to lead "normal" lives yet they remain deeply committed, both spiritually and economically, to those lost boys left behind and to their struggling homeland. TF1 International is a leading independent distributor in France and is expanding their presence in the international sales arena. The deal was negotiated by head of acquisitions Sara May and legal Caroline Dubourg on behalf of TF1 International and by CAA on behalf of the filmmakers. [Brian Brooks]
