EXCLUSIVE: Cannes Directors’ Fortnight documentary De Humani Corporis Fabrica has offered to U.S. (Grasshopper Film and Gratitude), Australia & New Zealand (Madman) and Spain (Vitrine Filmes) for Paris-based gross sales agency Les Films Du Losange.

The movie focuses on the goings on at 5 hospitals in northern Paris. Composed out of 350 hours of footage, filmmakers Verena Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor (whose Leviathan was a pageant favorite again in 2012) actually go contained in the human physique through the cameras that accompany surgical instruments — by means of blood vessels, down intestines, alongside spinal columns — and in addition chart the experiences of nurses, docs and different employees within the establishments.

The home deal was negotiated by Ryan Krivoshey of Grasshopper Film with Alice Lesort of Films du Losange. Release is being lined up for late 2022.

Producers are Norte Productions, CG Cinema, Rita Productions and the Sensory Ethnography Lab.

“We are so completely happy to associate with Grasshopper Film and Gratitude Films on Verena Paravel and Lucien Castaing-Taylor’s new documentary. The response from the press and the general public to the movie after its Cannes’ premiere has been actually robust – there was fairly a buzz! We know that they’re the right house for such a particular movie,” mentioned Alice Lesort, Head of International Sales at Les Films du Losange.

“Having launched earlier movies from the Sensory Ethnography Lab, like Leviathan, Sweetgrass, Manakamana, and Caniba, we’re thrilled to be engaged on Verena and Lucien’s newest, the astonishing De Humani Corporis Fabrica,” commented Ryan Krivoshey. “We’re delighted to be partnering with Gratitude Films on its launch and sit up for collaborating with Les Films du Losange and the whole filmmaking group.”
