- Holocaust themed documentary is nominated for Prix Europe 2015
UK sales agent Starline Entertainment has picked up international rights for Marco Niemeijer’s Holocaust themed documentary Little Angels. The film explores the far-reaching effects of the Holocaust through the troubled relationship between a 97-year-old Auschwitz survivor and her one remaining daughter born just after the emancipation of the camps. Annemiek van der Hell produced the film for Windmill Film.
Little Angels will premiere at the Netherlands Film Festival on 26 September and is nominated for the Prix Europe 2015, ahead of a wider festival campaign. Similar to the strategy Starline deployed for Gerry Fox’s documentary Marc Quinn: Making Waves, Little Angels will also have an event based UK release through Picturehouse, Dochouse and Home Manchester. The company will follow a similar approach throughout different territories.
Julie Delaney, partner and director of worldwide distribution at Starline said, “We’re very excited to be enriching our carefully chosen collection of documentaries with Niemeijer’s thoroughly moving film, Little Angels, and look forward to bringing to the international market.”
