Irish Co-Production ‘The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology’ Secures Doc & Film Distribution
04 Sep 2012 : By Eva Hall
‘The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema’ will premiere in Toronto next week
Irish co-production ‘The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology’ has been picked up by French distribution company Doc & Film International in a deal negotiated by Blinder Films’ Katie Holly and Doc & Films’ Daniela Elstner.

The Paris-based sales house is expected to release the documentary Europe-wide following its world premiere at this week’s Toronto International Film Festival.

The documentary is a co-production between Dublin’s Blinder Films and P Guide Productions in the UK. It is a sequel to director Sophie Fiennes’ ‘The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema’, released in 2006.

‘The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology’ sees Slovenian philosopher and psychoanalyst Slavoj Zizek explore different ideologies through the use of classic film clips, using ‘A Clockwork Orange’, ‘Taxi Driver’ and ‘The Sound of Music’ as examples.

Fiennes directed, with Blinder’s Holly producing. James Wilson, Martin Rosenbaum and Sophie Fiennes co-produced for P Guide Productions. Zizek wrote the script and presented.

Speaking of the deal with Doc & Film, which previously distributed Fiennes’ ‘Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow’, the director said: “I’m thrilled to be working again with Daniela and the team at Doc & Film. I really appreciate her continued commitment to the film and the audience for it.”

The 134 minute-long film was shot mainly in Ardmore Studios in Wicklow in 2011, before moving on to locations in LA. Dun Laoghaire-based EMC Ltd looked after post-production, with Ardmore Sound looking after sound.

The documentary was funded by the Irish Film Board, the BFI Film Fund, Film 4, Channel 4 and Rooks Nest Entertainment.

‘The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology’ will screen at TIFF on September 7, joining seven other Irish-attached productions, including ‘Byzantium’; ‘The Sapphires’; ‘Jump’; ‘Men at Lunch’; ‘Call Girl’; ‘Anna Karenina’ and ‘Seven Psychopaths’.
