The latest local festival market action has seen Kinosmith acquire the Hot Docs title Herman’s House (pictured) by first-time director Angad Singh Bhalla.

The documentary focuses on Herman Wallace, who has spent 40 years imprisoned in solitary confinement, and his artistic collaboration with New York artist Jackie Sumell.

Kinosmith’s Robin Smith purchased the Canadian theatrical rights to Herman’s House from Storyline Entertainment.

And indie distributor Syndicado acquired another documentary, Sagi Bornstein’s Kafka’s Last Story, which screened at the Toronto Jewish Film Festival.

Syndicado’s Greg Rubidge hammered out a deal for Kafka’s Last Story with Ruth Diskin Films, after its Canadian premiere in Toronto.
