Christopher Quinn's doc God Grew Tired of Us, narrated by Nicole Kidman, tracks three young Sudanese boys as they immigrate to New York City. It's one of the most highly acclaimed films at this year's Sundance, and news broke yesterday that CAA have brokered a deal with TF1 International to distribute the film in all non-English speaking territories. TF1 is a big-time French sales house, and they've been trying to expand into the international arena. In slightly more amazing news, Steve Rosenbaum relates the following anecdote: last night, after a screening of the film, a stranger who was particularly moved whipped out his checkbook and donated $25,000 to the charity started by one of the film's stars. We're assuming that the film will be a hot contender at Saturday's awards ceremony.
