Al Jazeera America to Air 'Village at the End of the World'
The Sarah Gavron and David Katznelson documentary will debut on TV later this year.
LONDON – Sarah Gavron and David Katznelson's documentary Village at the End of the World will debut on TV in the U.S. via Al Jazeera America and in the U.K. via Al Jazeera English.
The deal marks the first TV sales deal struck by U.K. indie sales and distribution banner Dogwoof.
Gavron's documentary -- about a remote village in Greenland with a population of 58 adults and one teenager, all pulling together to save their village despite the odds being stacked against them -- rolled out in U.K. theaters earlier this year.
Al Jazeera English's Jackie Murphy negotiated the deal with Dogwoof.
The film is due to screen on Al Jazeera English on Oct. 2, with the Al Jazeera America transmission to follow later in the year.
Village at the End of the World was produced by Met Film and is the second collaboration between the two companies following Town of Runners, released by Dogwoof in 2012.
