TORONTO -- Journeyman Pictures has picked up the world rights to the HBO documentary Tales from the Organ Trade, which is written and directed by Ric Esther Bienstock and narrated by David Cronenberg.
Journeyman will shop internationally the feature-length documentary, excluding North America.
Filmed over three years in eight countries, Tales From the Organ Trade explores the nasty business of black market organ trafficking internationally.
Besides HBO, the film was also produced for Shaw Media and Canal D in Canada.
Tales From the Organ Trade follows an earlier Bienstock documentary on human trafficking, Sex Slaves, which saw the Canadian filmmaker go undercover to expose a worldwide trade in women from the former Soviet bloc.
