Indie distributor Vision Films has acquired the rights to Honk, a new documentary directed and produced by actress Cheryl Allison through her Wow Films prodco.

The film tells the story of Allison’s unusual friendship with an abandoned goose, which made national news during the COVID-19 pandemic. The goose, named Honk, became an Instagram phenomenon (with some 77,000 followers on the platform), and also serves as an ambassador for abandoned domestic ducks and geese. Allison previously chronicled her relationship with the goose in the children’s book Honk: A True Story, written with Marty Van Kleeck.

Vision acquired the rights to Honk following its screening at the Dances With Films Festival in Hollywood earlier this month, and will release the documentary on major streaming and cable platforms in November.

Proceeds from the film will benefit Honk’s adoptive home, the Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center outside of Dallas.
