Dutch distrib handles world rights to South African doc
AMSTERDAM — Amsterdam-based distribution outfit Off The Fence has picked up world rights to a triad of titles in separate deals from India, South Africa and from its own back yard, Holland.
Among the packet were “10 Gears of Change,” Lloyd Ross’s tale of African farm workers who form a competitive cycle team. Doc is from South Africa’s Valley Studio.
Also in the triad were Indian filmers Prajna Khanna and Himali Kapil’s “No Man’s Land,” a look at the sexually ambiguous Hijras community in India, and “Doubting Thomas,” Dutch independent filmer Kristjan Knigge’s documentary about a Masai warrior’s transition to the status of elder.
Managing director Ellen Windemuth called the new additions “thought provoking studies from different corners of the world.”
