New York-based art house distributor Film Movement has picked up North American rights to The Seventh Fire, the Natalie Portman-produced documentary about Native American gangs.
The film is told through the perspective of a gang leader in a remote Minnesota reservation, who, after being sent to prison, has to confront his role in bringing drug violence to his community.
The documentary made its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival and will be making its North American bow as the Centerpiece screening of the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival.
“The film will really surprise you,” said the Black Swan actress. “It takes you into a world you’ve never seen before.”
Tree of Life helmer Terrence Malick and Native American filmmaker Chris Eyre (Smoke Signals) also served as executive producers on the film.
Michael Rosenberg of Film Movement negotiated the sale with The Seventh Fire director Jack Riccobono.
Film Movement aims to release The Seventh Fire in early 2016.
