New acquisition: The Deminer Premieres at IDFA

We're pleased to announce that our newest acquisition, The Deminer, has its world premiere at Amsterdam's annual IDFA on Sunday 19th November. 

The film follows deminer Fakhir, armed with just a pair of wire cutters, as he disarms thousands of explosive mines across Mosul, Iraq, a task that could cost him his life but save the lives of thousands.

“In terms of displays of heroic courage, there are few protagonists who can match the astonishing Fakhir in The Deminer. The filmmakers Hogir Hironi and Shinwar Kamal have created a gripping and suspenseful portrait to tell his story, and we are honoured to have been entrusted to share this film with international audiences.” Oli Harbottle, Head of Distribution, Dogwoof.
