British distributor Dogwoof has signed on to handle UK distribution and international sales for Sarah Gavron and David Katznelson’s documentary Village at the End of the World (pictured).

The deal is Dogwoof’s second with London-based production company Met Film, following the release of  Jerry Rothwell’s doc Town of Runners earlier this year.

The film follows the only teenager living in a tiny community of hunters in Northwest Greenland who doesn’t want to hunt. The film will premiere at the 56th BFI London Film Festival’s competition program tonight (October 18) and will open in UK theatres next year.

It was produced by Al Morrow and executive produced by Jonny Persey, Stewart le Maréchal and Jerry Rothwell of Met Film.
