Celluloid Dreams has picked up international sales rights to “The Eagle Huntress,” the hit Sundance documentary exec produced by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” star Daisy Ridley and Morgan Spurlock.
Paris-based Celluloid will represent global rights outside North America, Latin America, Germany, Australia/New Zealand, Scandinavia and Asia.
The film is directed by Otto Bell. It had its premiere last month at the Sundance Film Festival.
It portrays the true story of a 13-year-old Mongolian girl who is seeking to become the first eagle huntress in more than 2,000 years of male-dominated history.
“‘The Eagle Huntress’ was our big Sundance discovery,” said Celluloid president Hengameh Panahi. ” The film represents everything a modern family adventure needs: an unforgettable female role model hero, an engaging story and captivating visuals.”
It was produced by Stacey Reiss and Sharon Chang. Daisy Ridley, Morgan Spurlock, Jeremy Chilnick, Marc H. Simon, Dan Cogan, Regina K. Scully, Barbara Dobkin and Susan Maclaury are executive producers in association with Artemis Rising Foundation, Impact Partners, Shine Global and Warrior Poets. The film is edited by Pierre Takal and director of photography is Simon Niblett.
