New Europe Film Sales picks up Mark Cousins’ 'I Am Belfast'

24 August 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Documentary played in competition at Karlovy Vary.

Jan Naszewski’s Warsaw-based sales outlet New Europe Film Sales has picked up world sales rights to Mark Cousins’ documentary, I Am Belfast.

In the film, the Northern Ireland city is personified by a 10,000 year old woman who reveals its story. Themes brought up in the film range from the landscapes surrounding the city, its changing architecture and social structure to the political and personal repercussions of the Northern Irish conflict.

The feature, with a score by composer David Holmes (Ocean’s Eleven), received its world premiere as the opening feature of the Belfast Film Festival in April and played in the documentary competition of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in July.

Cousins previous documentaries include A Story of Children and Film (2013), The Story of Film: An Odyssey (2011) and The First Movie (2009).

I Am Belfast is a co-production between Hopscotch Films and Canderblinks Films.  It was funded »

Film Review: ‘I Am Belfast’

18 July 2015 4:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Any old documentary can give you the history of a city, but it takes a special kind of movie to capture its spirit, from the way the sun reflects off its walls to the smell of rain on its streets. Mark Cousins’ “I Am Belfast” transcends what is expected of such a portrait, inviting audiences on a sensory journey of the Northern Ireland capital, patiently guiding them through a deeply personal visual essay, where a radiant copper-headed woman embodies the very essence of the city — a 10,000-year-old soul sent to welcome visitors and bless those who have criss-crossed its neighborhoods all their lives. Cousins, a free spirit who spends much of his time on the festival circuit, duly earns his latest round of world travels with this entrancing project, while his reputation has reached the point that it should find limited distribution in other ports as well.
