It screens in the Toronto Film Festival’s World Contemporary Cinema section.
Pic has sold in a number of international territories including U.K. (Pecadillo Pictures), Benelux (ABC Distribution), Austria and Germany (Pro-Fun).
MK2 are handling international sales on the pic and have additional negotiations for other territory sales in the works.
