London-based sales house Dogwoof has acquired the international rights to Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Dror Moreh’s latest feature-length film, The Human Factor.
The 108-minute film, which held its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival last weekend, offers an in-depth look, through unprecedented access, at how the U.S. came within reach of brokering peace between Israel and its neighbors 25 years ago. The doc mixes intimate interviews with period color and black-and-white photos to shape its story.
The Human Factor is produced by Moreh’s DMP and Rise Films, in association with Channel 8, Reshet and the Rabinowitz Fund.
Dogwoof will represent The Human Factor for international sales beginning at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival and at next month’s MIPCOM market in Cannes. UTA Independent Film Group represents the film’s North American rights.
“It’s great to be collaborating again with Teddy, this time to bring The Human Factor to international audiences,” said Oli Harbottle, head of distribution and acquisitions at Dogwoof, in a statement. “After the success of his previous film The Gatekeepers, Dror is the ideal filmmaker to tell the behind-the-scenes story of the Middle East peace process and we’re looking forward to sharing the film with buyers.”
