New York-based Cargo Film & Releasing has taken worldwide sales rights to a pair of doc projects, including IDFA Official Competition film GABI, Between Ages 8 and 13 and the short film Smelly Little Town.

GABI, Between Ages 8 and 13 (pictured), from director Engeli Broberg, covers five years in a young girl’s life after her family moves from Stockholm to a small, rural town. The film follows Gabi’s growth through early adolescence, puberty and encountering gender stereotypes. The film is produced by Anna Ljungmark and House of Real, and supported by the Swedish Film Institute and the Norwegian Film Institute, as well as Fritt Ord, the Sundance Film Institute and the Ford Foundation.

Cargo represents worldwide sales rights for the film, excluding Sweden, Norway and Finland. GABI, Between Ages 8 and 13 premiered at CPH: DOX, was an IDFA Official Selection, and won best feature documentary at the Nordic Film Festival.

Smelly Little Town, meanwhile, turns its focus to Bay City, Michigan. When entertainment icon Madonna described her hometown as a “little smelly town” on national TV in 1987, local media turned public opinion against her. With the town having fallen on hard times over the past couple of decades, Zach Neumeyer’s film details the debate within the city about capitalizing on the singer’s celebrity.

Cargo holds worldwide sales rights for the film, which premiered at the DOXA Festival. Neumeyer has worked as an editor on docuseries that have aired on Netflix, Disney+, PBS, Peacock, History Channel, Starz and more.
