Visit Films closes deal with Ascot Elite for Herzog’s Cave

Ryan Kampe of New York’s Visit Films has closed a deal with Ascot Elite for German-speaking territories on Werner Herzog’s Cave Of Forgotten Dreams.

Kampe also licensed rights for the former Yugoslavia to Discovery after presenting the film to buyers at the EFM in Berlin, where he announced a French deal with Metropolitan.

Cave Of Forgotten Dreams played as a special screening at the Berlinale and premiered in Toronto last year. It chronicles the discovery of wall paintings dating back approximately 30,000 years in a cave in central France.

The film previously sold to IFC for the US and will open through Picture House in the UK, Star Sands in Japan and Against Gravity in Poland.
