The Orchard & CNN Films Team For $2M Deal On Docu ‘Trophy’ – Sundance

    Activism must be in the air today. The Orchard and CNN Films have acquired North American rights to Shaul Schwarz and Christina Clusiau’s documentary Trophy, which is produced by Lauren Haber and Pulse Films’ Julia Nottingham. Total deal is near $2 million, sources said. The Orchard will handle all North American rights, and CNN gets broadcast rights. International rights still are being brokered.

    The pic is a provocative exploration of the evolving relationship between big-game hunting and wildlife conservation, and it screened today in the U.S. Documentary Competition. The Orchard will release the film this year on a minimum of 150 screens. The docu covers the hunting for sport of endangered animals from elephants to rhinos and lions and investigates the powerhouse industries of big-game hunting, breeding and wildlife conservation.

    UTA and Submarine repped the film.
