Also on the slate is Wolves Unleashed, filmmaker Andrew Simpson’s 1x90mins attempt at filming the most expansive film about wolves in history;It’s a Girl, which comes in 52- and 65-minute formats and looks at why, in some parts of the world, girls are killed and aborted simply because of their gender;This Space Available, which looks a growing global movement against traditional mass advertising; and 1x52minsThe Search for the First European, billed as a “scientific road movie”.
Former Zodiak Entertainment executive David Cornwall launched Scorpion in 2009.
