CANNES: Global Screen Inks Further Deals for Sundance Winner ‘Green Prince’

Nadav Schirman's feature docu screens in Cannes Market

CANNES — Global Screen has closed further sales on Nadav Schirman’s feature docu “The Green Prince,” which won the audience award at Sundance, in advance of the film’s screenings during the Cannes Market.

The English-language film has been sold to Germany (Rapid Eye Movies), Poland (Against Gravity), Taiwan (Swallow Wings) and Israel (Shani Films).

It was previously picked up for the U.K. (Curzon), Australia and New Zealand (Madman Entertainment), the U.S. (Music Box Films) and Canada (Mongrel Media).

The film, which plays like a psychological thriller, combines first-person testimony and archive footage to tell the story of one of Israel’s most prized intelligence sources, the son of a Hamas leader.

The pic screens in Cannes on May 17 (15:30, Gray 2) and on May 21 (18:00, Riviera 1).
