Dokument goes '8 Miles' for biopic


Dokument Films, the MPI Media' Group'ss new independent film label, has acquired all North American rights to Achim Bornhak's biopic "8 Miles High" (Das Wilde Leben). The film, starring Natalia Avelon and slated for release next year, recounts the life of Uschi Obermaier, a small town girl from rural Bavaria who became a '60s fashion icon and companion of the Rolling Stones. MPI's Greg Newman negotiated the deal with Andreas Rothbauer of Beta Cinema, repping the film.
