Roadside Attractions Takes "Wah-Wah" North American Rights

Roadside Attractions has picked up North American distribution rights to Richard E. Grant’s directorial debut, “Wah-Wah,” while Hopscotch has nabbed the film for Australia and New Zealand, sales company The Works announced Thursday. The film opened last month’s Edinburgh Film Festival and was a Special Presentation at the Toronto International Film Festival. The deals were negotiated by Joy Wong, head of The Works International, Howard Cohen and Eric DArbeloff of Roadside Attractions with Troy Lum and Sandie Don for Hopscotch. “Wah-Wah” is a semi-autobiographical coming of age at the end of an age story, set during the last gasp of the British Empire in Swaziland. Told through the eyes of young Ralph Compton, the plot focuses on the dysfunctional Compton family whose gradual disintegration mirrors the end of British rule. [Brian Brooks]
