Dogwoof feature docs roam Europe

The Deminer looks at the aftermath of the Iraq War

MIPTV: Broadcasters including European cultural network Arte have acquired feature documentaries from UK-based factual distributor Dogwoof.

Arte in France and Germany, along with the BBC, VPRO in the Netherlands, VRT in Belgium, Movistar+ in Spain and VGTV in Norway, have picked up The Deminer.

The film, from Hogir Horiri and Shinwar Kamal, focuses on a family living in the aftermath of the Iraq War and won the Special Jury Prize at Idfa, where it premiered last year.

Meanwhile, Daniel McCabe’s This is Congo was sold to Starz in the US, RTS in Switzerland, RTBF in Belgium and Movistar+.

The film is an immersive, unfiltered look into one of the longest conflicts in the world, and the people surviving within it.

Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex, Fashion and Disco, James Crump’s profile of the fashion illustrator and his outrageous entourage, has gone to Channel 8 in Israel, Rialto in New Zealand and TVN in Poland.

The Work, by Jairus McLeary and Gethin Aldous, also went to Rialto as well as YLE in Finland, VRT, SVT in Sweden, BBC, VPRO and Movistar+. The doc follows three men from the outside who join a four-day group therapy session with inmates inside Folsom Prison in California.

Finally, Gustavo Salmeron’s Goya Award-winning family comedy Lots of Kids, a Monkey & a Castle was sold to YLE and VPRO.
