U.S. distributor Bond/360 has picked up director Anthony Baxter‘s documentary A Dangerous Game(pictured).

The follow-up to Baxter’s 2011 doc You’ve Been Trumped, the film looks at the environmental impacts of luxury golf courses, including a space-age resort near a World Heritage site in Croatia and a Middle Eastern desert course designed by Tiger Woods.

A Dangerous Game will screen next in New York City at the Stranger Than Fiction documentary series at IFC Center on March 12 and then become available on all major VOD platforms in June.

In You’ve Been Trumped, Baxter focused on a conflict between billionaire developer Donald Trump’s battle with locals in Scotland over his plan to build a luxury golf course. A Dangerous Game expands to look at the wider environmental and political issues raised by the construction of luxury golf courses around the world. It features an interview with Trump, as well as interviews with actor Alec Baldwin and environmentalist Robert Kennedy Jr.

A Dangerous Game premiered at Hot Docs last year and went on to screen at Sheffield Doc/Fest and other international festivals. It was produced by Richard Phinney. Marc Schiller and Amanda Lebow from Bond/360 negotiated the deal.
