New York-based Lorber Films has picked up the U.S. rights for Danish director Janus Metz’s war doc Armadillo. Metz’s film, the first documentary ever chosen for competition in Cannes Critics’ Week where it won the grand prize, follows a platoon of young Danish soldiers stationed in Afghanistan’s Helmand province and shows how their personalities are affected and transformed by the war. It has since screened at the Toronto International Film Festival and DOC NYC and sparked a government inquiry in Denmark into the actions of the soldiers captured in the film. The distribution deal was negotiated between Kino Lorber and TrustNordisk. A theatrical release date has not been announced.
