The Orchard has picked up North American distribution rights to the documentary Dina, which walked away from the Sundance Film Festival with the U.S. Documentary Grand Jury Prize.
Dan Sickles and Antonio Santini directed the cinema verite-style doc, which follows the relationship between Dina, a 49-year-old in suburban Philadelphia, and her fiancé Scott, a Walmart door greeter, as they navigate the more intimate parts of their unconventional romance.
Orchard is planning a fall release.
Sickles and Santini produced the pic, while Christine Vachon, Robert Fernandez, Dan Levinson, Dan Cogan, Jenny Raskin and Stephanie Choate served as executive producers.
Submarine negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
Dina is the second Sundance documentary for Orchard, having picked up the big-game doc Trophy near the beginning of the fest. The distribution company also acquired the Sam Elliot-starrer The Hero.
