THE IDEALIST heading to China

The Danish international sales company LevelK has sold the Danish drama The Idealist to China’s Lemon Tree Media Company.

The deal reflects the first results of the company’s recent Eastern expansion with the appointment of Hong Kong sales manager Derek Lui.

The Idealist tells the story of a whistleblower who attempts to reveal the secret behind a nuclear disaster that occurred during the Cold War. The film was produced by Toolbox Films with support from the Nordisk Film & TV Fond. It is currently screening at the Beijing International Film Festival.
