Produced by France’s Illegitime Defense, this hard-hitting and topical film includes interviews with Tony Blair and Condoleeza Rice.

“Qaddafi” was pre-bought by broadcasters in 13 countries, reports Variety, including France 5, where it was first screened March 1. It has since been acquired by Australia’s SBS, Spain’s ETB, Canada’s CBC and Denmark’s DR.

“Finding overseas partners early on helped us create an ambitious documentary that has a broad international appeal, which is sometimes difficult to achieve when a film is fully financed out of France,” producer Arnaud Xainte told Variety.

MIPBlog caught up with Xainte at MIPDoc, April 3:

Just one of the 1400 factual films screening exclusively at MIPDoc April 2-3 in Cannes, and online all year at www.onlinescreenings.com.
