Sony Pictures Classics had a busy Sundance acquiring The Diary Of A Teenage Girl and Grandma during the festival. It has now snapped up yet another title that debuted in Park City, taking North American rights on Louise Osmond’s Dark Horse which won the Audience Award in the World Cinema Documentary Competition last month. Protagonist Pictures is selling the inspirational story of a group of friends from a working men’s club in Wales who decide to breed a racehorse. Against all odds, their young foal, raised on nearby wasteland, goes on to become a champion. Protagonist is screening it in the market here at EFM.
