Music Box Buys Nature Documentary ‘Seasons’ by ‘Winged Migration’ Filmmakers

Music Box Films has bought the U.S. rights to “Seasons” (“Les Saisons”), the latest documentary from filmmakers Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud.

Perrin and Cluzaud were the co-directors of 2001’s “Winged Migration,” which was nominated for an Academy Award, and 2010’s “Oceans.”

Seasons” has opened in France to strong box office. Music Box Films plans a fall release in the U.S.

The documentary compresses the stretch between the Ice Age and the modern era into a single seasonal cycle of its own. It includes footage of animals in the wild, along with the long and tumultuous shared history that inextricably binds humankind with the natural world.

Music Box Films managing director Ed Arentz said of the acquisition, “In ‘Winged Migration,’ ‘Oceans’ and now in ‘Seasons,’ Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud’s amazingly innovative films have captured the beauty, drama and preciousness of wildlife in ways that we have simply never seen before. This is filmmaking that demands to be seen on the big screen, will appeal to all ages and whose implicit message of conservation is all the more powerful when communicated almost entirely in images alone.”

Tthe deal was negotiated at the Berlin Film Festival by Music Box Films president William Schopf and Pathé International’s Muriel Sauzay.
