Fortissimo’s docu leap

'Bridge' pic picked up at AFM

Adding to its roster of documentary features, Fortissimo Films has picked up international rights to “The Bridge,” about suicides at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.

Pic is a first-time effort by Eric Steel, a former Walt Disney and Scott Rudin Prods exec who has his own shingle, Easy There Tiger.

Tech credits go to cinematographer Peter McCandles, editor Sabine Krayenbuehl and composer Alex Heffes.

The deal was done between Micah Green, formerly of Cinetic Media, and Fortissimo co-chiefs Michael J Werner and Wouter Barendrecht. They describe the doc as “compelling, fascinating and very emotional.” Cinetic will handle the sale of rights in North America.

“Bridge” was inspired by “The Fatal Grandeur of the Golden Gate Bridge,” an article written by Tad Friend in the New Yorker.

Cinetic and Fortissimo previously handled hit docs including “Capturing the Friedmans,” “Super Size Me” and “Spellbound.”
