In a fashion similar to ThinkFilm's work on the documentary Murderball, the New York-based indie has acquired worldwide rights to War/Dance, which will have its world premiere in competition this month at the Sundance Film Festival.
Directed by husband and wife Sean Fine and Andrea Nix Fine, the film revolves around a group of African children who overcome the brutal realities of war by participating in a national musical competition. The idea for "War/Dance" was originated by producer Albie Hecht and his wife, Susan MacLaury, and produced through their new nonprofit production company, Shine Global, in conjunction with Fine Films.
ThinkFilm will release the documentary in the fourth quarter.
Set in Northern Uganda, "War/Dance" tells the story of three children whose families have been torn apart, their homes destroyed and who reside in a displaced-persons camp in Patongo. When they are invited to compete in an annual music and dance festival, their historic journey to their nation's capital also is an opportunity to regain a part of their childhood and to taste victory for the first time. »
