Broadcasters on the look out for unusual documentaries for their dedicated strands should look no further that this Canadian 1x60mins/1x90mins programme. according to Nicky Davies Williams, CEO of its distributor, DCD Rights.
The doc follows five seemingly normal people who are sexually and mentally attracted to inanimate objects _ a condition known as Objectum-Sexuality. Among the subjects is a woman who was ‘married’ to the Eiffel Tower but is now ‘with’ the Berlin Wall, a British woman in love [with] the Statue of Liberty, and a [wo]man in love with a ferris wheel.
“This is just about the most comprehensive film on Objectum-Sexuality,” says Davies Williams. “What’s extraordinary is the articulate, high achieving kind of people they are. It’s essentially a humanist story, and about people on the edge of normality, which is where people are most interesting.” DCD Rights, the sales arm of UK-based production group DCD Media, will be seeking to place the doc with Latin American buyers at the market, and also expects it to do well in Scandinavia. A deal with an unnamed US channel is close to finalisation.
Animism: People Who Love Objects will air on Global/Shaw on September 28, 2013, at 8pm (EST).
