Content Television has snagged rights to Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus, a feature doc that attempts to corroborate the events told in the Bible, and will launch it internationally in Cannes as MIPTV gets underway tomorrow.
The doc was produced by to Thinking Man Films. In the programme, filmmaker Timothy Mahoney chronicles an in-depth archaeological investigation in Egypt as his team attempts to corroborate the biblical text.
Saralo MacGregor, executive Vice President, acquisitions, development and sales at Content Television, said: “The film’s release campaign in the US has already generated significant interest from a global audience, which we will be able to build upon with its international debut at MIPTV.
“In Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus, Tim Mahoney and the team at Thinking Man Films have created a powerful and important film which will generate an international conversation about the Exodus event and what it means wherever it airs, creating real event television for broadcasters worldwide.”
The film has been on the festival circuit in the US and had a 600-theatre cinema release.
“What started out as a crisis of my own faith led me on an incredible journey of discovery,” said Mahoney. “We are thrilled to partner with Content Media, which has a strong proven track-record in the international distribution of non-fiction programming.”
Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus’ executive producer David Wessner added: “It’s not a puffy documentary; it’s an entertaining presentation of a boat-load of scientific and historical facts which shed new, important light on this ancient but most important story.”
