The Doc Corner, has been showing new documentaries online and at their stand in the Palais in Cannes and some have connected with the Sales community here. This new initiative of Marche Directeur Delegue Jerome Paillard is designed to help Marche participants to find distribution, sales and festival play for their feature length (70 minutes plus) documentary new and completed films.
Half a century ago, Brazilian composer and musician Antonio Carlos Jobim (1927-1994) introduced bossa nova to a worldwide audience with ''The Girl from Ipanema.'' This musical collage of countless seamlessly edited excerpts of concert footage covers decades of events all over world. There is no commentary; the music speaks for itself. Picture postcards, private photos, official documents, posters, album covers, and sheet music complement the concert footage.
The film is in Portugese and English, 84 minutes. It has now, in Cannes, screened twice, out of Competition.
The important Paris based international sales company Wide House has selected this film for its new documentary division.
