Kew lines up features for Hot Docs

UK-based Kew Media Distribution is to unveil a raft of feature documentaries at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival later this month, including a film about AIDS.

Killing Patient Zero (1×98’), from Fadoo Productions and Fine Point Films, explores the pre-AIDS era in the 1970s up to the present and follows a Canadian flight attendant as the disease and hysteria around it spreads.

Also on the slate is White Pine Pictures’ Toxic Beauty (1×90’ or 1×78’), which focuses on a class action lawsuit against the world’s largest healthcare company, Johnson & Johnson.

Elsewhere, Our Godfather (1×93’) is from Black Earth Films and Phenomen Trust Production. It tells the story of an Italian gangster who became the first high-ranking Sicilian Mafia boss to turn against the organisation.

Also being shopped by Kew at Hot Docs, which runs from April 25 to May 6 in Toronto, is Fine Point Films’ Bojayá: Caught in the Crossfire (1×80’). It uncovers the story of a community leader and Nobel Peace Prize nominee who lost 32 relatives in the 2002 massacre in Colombia.
