Mirjam Strasser, Head of Sales & Acquisitions, Autentic Distribution
Autentic Distribution has upped their offer with new exclusive documentaries and series for the upcoming virtual online version of MIPCOM. “We have so many powerful programs in this year’s MIPCOM line-up. We are especially excited about the crime series 'The Dyatlov Pass Incident' (4x52’, 8x30’) that is produced by 1-2-3 Production to accompany their fiction series 'Dead Mountain – The Dyatlov Pass Incident'”, says Mirjam Strasser, Head of Sales & Acquisitions. The crime series follows a group of private researchers that have found possible new leads asking if they can solve the 60-years-old mystery that professional investigators failed to unlock.
Autentic Distribution’s recent slate also features two Factual Entertainment programs produced by Italian prodco GiUMa Produzioni for Discovery/DMAX Italy: "Snow Lords" (80’) and "Snow Lords: The Series" (4x45’). The feature film "Snow Lords" follows the Marzola Family in Val Gardena, Alto Adige preparing for the winter season in time. “Since the feature film was a huge success for the channel, it was extended to 'Snow Lords: The Series'. The Factual Entertainment series accompanies the 'The Snow Lords' of Brenta Dolomites, Trentino, challenging nature and time to achieve their greatest goal: to successfully open the winter season”, Mirjam Strasser states. At the heart of this realm of struggle lies Madonna di Campiglio, the “Queen of the Dolomites”. In this area, three other ski locations do all they can to steal attention from the “Queen”.
Alongside, the indie doc "Love Around the World" (2x52’, 75’) of in-house production label Autentic tells the story of a freshly married couple that has decided to turn their honeymoon into a journey around the world exploring to what extent the idea of a romantic relationship is determined and filtered by specific contexts including social, geographical and cultural ones. “This very touching and heart-warming film is a gem in our catalogue that will glue the viewer to the TV”, Strasser adds.
