Sundance Selects has acquired North American rights to Is the Man who is Tall Happy? (pictured), Michel Gondry’s DOC NYC-bound feature doc.
The film uses animation to examine the life of political philosopher Noam Chomsky, and was yesterday named as the closing-night film for November’s DOC NYC festival.
“This film is another genius creation from Michel Gondry, whose collaboration with the legendary Noam Chomsky has resulted a film that is both intellectually challenging and creatively brilliant,” said Jonathan Sehring, the president of Sundance Selects/IFC Films. “Chomsky has never discussed his work in such a unique and memorable way.”
WME Independent negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
