HanWay Select has sold Italian rights for Errol Morris’ documentary The Unknown Known ahead of the film’s competition screening today [Sept 4].

Fledgling outfit I Wonder Pictures has nabbed all rights to the portrait of controversial politician Rumsfeld whose career spanned more than 50 years, covering four administrations from Richard Nixon to George W Bush.

The deal was negotiated by HanWay Select’s director of sales and distribution Fabien Westerhoff and Andrea Romeo, general manager of I Wonder.

The new Italian outfit plans a June 2014 release. Recent acquisitions for the doc specialist include Searching for Sugar Man, The Gatekeepers, The Act of Killing and For No Good Reason.
