NEW YORK — Film Movement has acquired all North American rights to the drama “Dreams of Dust,” the story of a Nigerian peasant who seeks to escape his past in a gold-mine town.
Laurent Salgues’ film, nominated for a World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, follows a man on his journey for mining work in a small African town who discovers that the mine was abandoned long ago. He finds redemption in the arms of a widower and her child as he helps in their struggle to survive.
The France, Canada and Burkina Faso co-production was an official selection at the Venice Film Festival (Venice Days), Melbourne International Film Festival, Shanghai Film Festival, Sarasota Film Festival and Rome Film Festival.
” ‘Dreams of Dust’ will be appreciated by the ever-growing population of sophisticated film fans looking for a truly heartfelt and intellectual entertainment experience,” Film Movement CEO Stuart Litman said.
The acquisition was negotiated by Film Movement president Adley Gartenstein with Loic Magneron from Wide Management.
