I’ve always admired Rachel and Colin’s work, and I’m thrilled to be able to share their enthusiasm for serious and unusual work.”
Madriver International is in charge of international sales and bringing the film to the Cannes Virtual Market, while Cinetic Media, CAA Media Finance, and WME are in charge of finance and domestic rights.
