iW NEWS | Maximum Takes International "Water"

Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury prize-winner “Trouble The Water” has been picked up by Toronto-based Maximum Films International for all rights outside North America. The documentary, directed by Tia Lessin and Carl Deal, details the lives of aspiring rap artist Kim and her streetwise husband Scott as they are trapped in New Orleans by floodwaters.”Maximum is fortunate to have acquired this award-winning and inspirational film, and to be able to work with such talented filmmakers as Tia Lessin and Carl Deal,” said Maximum’s Managing Director Charlotte Mickie. “We were incredibly moved by ‘Trouble The Water”s inspiring message and the uplifting true story and courage of Kim and Scott Roberts.” [Peter Knegt]
