iW NEWS | "Derek" Deal at Sundance

Isaac Julien‘s “Derek” has been acquired by Andrew Herwitz‘s The Film Sales Company in a deal for U.S. distribution rights and worldwide sales rights (with the exception of the U.K.). Narrated and written by Tilda Swinton, the film is having its world premiere in the Sundance Film Festival‘s World Cinema Documentary Competition and will have a specialized theatrical release later this year. It is set to screen in the Panorama section at the upcoming Berlinale. The documentary, which looks at the life of artist and filmmaker Derek Jarman, was funded by Film London, Channel 4, MoMA and the Sundance Documentary Fund. It was produced by Eliza Mellor and Colin MacCabe and executive produced by Swinton and James Mackay. [Eugene Hernandez]
