Dartmouth Films picks up Edinburgh world premiere ‘Husband’ for UK-Ireland | Movie News

UK arthouse documentary specialist Dartmouth Films has acquired Josh Appignanesi and Devorah Baum’s documentary feature Husband, ahead of its world premiere at Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) today (August 16), for UK and Ireland distribution.

Dartmouth Films acquired the feature from the filmmakers directly. The documentary is competing at EIFF for the Powell and Pressburger award. A theatrical release is planned for the UK and Ireland in autumn.

Co-directors and married couple Appignanesi and Baum attempt to figure out their relationship on screen, involving an angst-riddled trip to the United States, where English literature university professor Baum is promoting her first book, with their two young kids in tow. Zadie Smith features. Appignanesi and Baum have also produced the film.

Appignanesi and Baum previously both co-directed 2016 parenting documentary The New Man. Appignanesi’s previous credits also include 2010 comedy The Infidel.

Dartmouth Films’ slate includes the surprise box office hit of the summer, Margy Kinmonth’s Eric Ravilious: Drawn To War, about the forgotten UK war painter.
