Abramorama and Cargo Film & Releasing have partnered to release Monogamish and Becoming Who I Was for the global market. 

Under the agreement, Abramorama will release the films in theaters across North America and, together with Cargo, will work with the filmmakers on the global release across all platforms. The arrangement further extends the companies’ shared focus to provide worldwide full-service distribution options to filmmakers. 

Tao Raspoli’s 2014 feature-length doc Monogamish follows the Italian filmmaker and prince on a journey to talk to relatives, advice columnists, psychologists, historians, sex workers, sex therapists, and ordinary couples about love, sex and monogamy in our culture.

Meanwhile, Moon Chang-Yong and Jeon Jin’s Berlinale award-winner Becoming Who I Was (pictured), a realscreen MIPCOM 2017 Pick, shares the story of a young Indian boy who, after discovering that he is the reincarnation of a centuries-old Tibetan monk, treks through India with his elderly godfather to find his place at the monastery.

“Our companies are a perfect complement. Abramorama excels at the theatrical release and the ability to coordinate strategy for their films, while Cargo brings their global relationships in the doc space to make sure each film receives maximum exposure,” said Cargo Film & Releasing president David Piperni in a statement.
