‘Lynch/Oz’ Sells To Key Territories Ahead of London Film Festival Screening & First-Look Trailer
EXCLUSIVE: London-based Dogwoof has sold Lynch/Oz, the latest documentary from Swiss filmmaker Alexandre O. Philippe, to a host of key territories ahead of the film’s screening in competition at the London Film Festival. Deadline can also share a trailer for the film above.
Janus Films has scooped North American distribution rights on the film. Other sales include Nonstop (Scandinavia and Baltics), Film4 (UK), Just Wanted (Italy), Potemkine (France), Movistar (Spain), and NOS Lusomundo (Portugal).
“For over two decades, I have religiously collected every single disc release from The Criterion Collection. As a result, the excitement of seeing the Janus Films logo on my television screen has become an integral part of my cinephilia, and a ritual of sorts,” director Alexandre O. Philippe said.
“Naturally, I am thrilled to partner with Janus and Criterion on Lynch/Oz, and I couldn’t think of better partners for this film, which has already taken the festival world by storm, and will also be released by top-notch international distributors.”
Written and directed by Philippe, the doc features six invited American critics and filmmakers who explore and present their unique perspectives on how Victor Fleming’s 1930s classic The Wizard of Oz has influenced the cinema of David Lynch. Contributors include John Waters, Karyn Kusama, and David Lowery.
The doc is produced by Kerry Deignan Roy. Editing is by David Lawrence who co-produced alongside Robert Muratore who also acts as cinematographer. Lynch/Oz is an Exhibit A Pictures production, in association with Dogwoof.
The film debuted earlier this year at Tribeca Film Festival and played at Fantastic Fest and will screen at Sitges Film Festival after its showing in the Documentary competition in London.
The film will receive a theatrical UK and Eire release on December 2.
