Dogwoof has signed a multi-territory deal with Universal Pictures International Entertainment for the documentary Blackfish, covering Asia, Italy, Portugal, Central and Eastern Europe, Africa, Scandinavia and Latin America.
The documentary, from director Gabriela Cowperthwaite, looks at the story of a killer whale, Tilikum, and the controversy around captivity at SeaWorld.
The deal was brokered by Ana Vicente, head of theatrical for Dogwoof.
“This deal is the culmination of an amazing year for Blackfish,” said Vicente. “It so rewarding to see how passionate Universal feels about Blackfish, which is what we at Dogwoof look for in the partners for the films we represent.”
