nWave Pictures Acquires Worldwide Distribution Rights to the Immersive Giant Screen Film “HURRICANE”
Brussels (Belgium) and Burbank (California), August 31, 2016 – nWave Pictures has acquired the worldwide distribution rights to HURRICANE, a giant screen 3D documentary film produced by Ouragan Films. The 40-minute film will be screened in October 2016 at the Giant Screen Cinema Association Conference in Toronto. Producers Andy Byatt (Blue Planet, 2001; Planet Earth, 2006), Cyril Barbançon and Jacqueline Farmer together with composer Yann Tiersen (Amélie, 2001) bring this extraordinary experience to the giant screen.
HURRICANE is the journey of a weather system, fuelled by a force so powerful that it was revered as a deity by ancient civilizations. From a sudden howling sand storm in Senegal heralding the coming monsoon, the winds transform over the Atlantic Ocean into a raging monster five hundred miles across. Ships are tossed on growing ocean swells, and the violent winds and torrential rains of hurricane Lucy crash into the rainforests of the Caribbean before causing immense storm surges in the Gulf of Mexico.
