LA-based sales agent The Exchange has acquired international sales rights to the Ron Howard-directed, Jay Z-starring documentary Made in America (pictured), ahead of its TIFF world premiere on Saturday (September 7).

The film follows Jay Z as he attempts to launch the two-day Made in America festival in Philadelphia. It is produced by Jay Z, Howard and Brian Grazer, along with Imagine Entertainment, Marcy Media and RadicalMedia, in association with Participant Media.

The deal was brokered by CAA, Laura Ivey and Max Leeds of The Exchange.

“Ron Howard has created an entertaining and inspirational documentary,” said Brian O’Shea, CEO of The Exchange. “The music of Made in America and the inspiration for this event concert are simply fantastic. The Exchange team is proud to bring this highly commercial film to our international buyers.”

Following its TIFF premiere, Made in America will debut on TV in the U.S. via Showtime, on October 11 at 9 p.m. EST.
