Martin Zandvliet’s Land of Mine, which has been nominated for an Oscar, has been picked up by UK distributor Soda Pictures.

The film was previously acquired by fellow UK outfit Metrodome, before the company went into administration in August 2016.

Land Of Mine, which premiered at TIFF in 2015, follows a group of German POWs in Denmark who are forced to defuse and clear more than 1.5 million landmines from the Danish coastline.

The film will release in the United Kingdom in summer 2017.
