CINEMA ON DEMAND
In order to bring documentaries to the cinema, new paths have to be explored – the competition is too great and relevant and innovative documentaries are disappearing from cinemas almost unseen too quickly. For THE CHILDREN OF UTOPIA, S.U.M.O. developed a special, very successful strategy: the film ran in 170 cinemas in Germany in just one evening, reached over 20,000 moviegoers and is one of the most successful German documentaries in 2019.
