Distributor Music Box has acquired the U.S. rights to director Mor Loushy’s documentary Censored Voices (pictured).

The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, is an archival project based on interviews with a group of soldiers recorded the week after Israel’s victory in the Six-Day War of 1967.

Music Box took all U.S. rights and is planning a theatrical release – including an Oscar-qualifying run – later in the year.

The doc’s sales agent, Dogwoof, also sold Censored Voices to Blue Ice Docs in Canada, JIFF in Australia and New Zealand, Films Distribution in France, Against Gravity in Poland, Restart for the former Yugoslavia and Feltrinelli in Italy.

Feltrinelli will release the doc theatrically this fall, as will Dogwoof in the UK and RealFiction in Germany.
