ScreenDaily is reporting that Warsaw-based sales outlet New Europe Film Sales has picked up world sales rights to Mark Cousins’ documentary, I Am Belfast.
The film tells the story of the Northern Ireland capital in a whole new light, through the eyes of a 10,000 year old woman. The film is told in documentary style, with Helena Bereen acting as the 10,000 year old tour guide.
A collaborative effort I Am Belfast features cinematography from the award-winning Chungking Express framer Christopher Doyle, with a score by David Holmes, the Belfast born composer and producer whose film soundtracks include Out of Sight, Ocean’s 11 and Hunger.
I Am Belfast is a co-production between Hopscotch Films and Canderblinks Films, funded by the BFI, Creative Scotland, Northern Ireland Screen, and Hopscotch Films.
