Montréal – February 9, 2017 – Seville International is pleased to announce that it has swooped up the international rights to Slavko Martinov’s PECKING ORDER from the producers and the New Zealand Film Commission and will launch sales of the chick flick at the upcoming European Film Market.
This feel-good feather-ruffling flockumentary takes you into the distinctly Kiwi world of competitive poultry pageantry, inhabited by a group of understated, witty and likable chicken obsessives hell bent on victory at the New Zealand National Poultry Show. This comedy-drama about the circle of life, power struggles and the need for progress, follows members of the Christchurch Poultry, Pigeon and Bantam Club struggling to peak at nationals while decades of club infighting threaten to tear their 148-year old club apart.
Produced and directed by Slavko Martinov (Propaganda), PECKING ORDER was made possible by the support of the New Zealand Film Commission. Mike Kelland and David Brechin-Smith also served as producers and chicken fanciers on the project.
“I’m delighted to be working with Anick and the Seville International team on this special film.” said Martinov.
“This out-of-the-box, hilarious project is pure fun for me and the team at Seville. We are so excited to work with Slavko to bring this creative flockumentary to the world and show audiences just how to ruffle some feathers. Buyers will flock,” Anick Poirier, Senior Vice President, International Sales, Seville International.
