Double Dutch Acquires Lucky For International Marketplace

Toronto based Double Dutch International division of Double Dutch Media, attending AFM for the first time, has acquired the International rights excluding South Africa, to Lucky, the critically acclaimed drama that had its world premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.

Produced by Town Productions, producer Christopher J. Wilmot said: "When I first saw Avie Luthra's award winning short film, Lucky, at the Milan Film Festival in 2006, I knew, as a producer, we had to attempt to make the short into a feature film. Six years later, and after a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, Lucky, through Double Dutch Media, is ready for the marketplace. We couldn't be more excited."

Jason Moring, President Double Dutch Media said, "This movie is an absolute must see. After seeing it at TIFF, it was a priority to add to our international offering. The story will resonate with audiences around the world and the performances by Jayashree and Sihle will stay with you long after the film has ended."

With outstanding performances from renowned Indian actress Jayashree Basavaraj and 12-year old Sihle Dlamini, Lucky is currently touring festivals worldwide, playing recently at Busan and Abu-Dhabi where Basavaraj received the Best Actress Award.

Made in South Africa, Lucky is about a ten-year-old South African orphan who leaves his Zulu village to make his own life in the city...only to find no one will help him, except a formidable Indian woman called Padma. Through an odyssey marked by greed, violence, and ultimately, belonging, Lucky shows how a child's spirit can bring out decency, humility and even love in adults struggling to survive in the new South Africa.
